Vegan Mac & Cheese Recipe


I saw this recipe on Pinterest (search: vegan mac & cheese) the other day, and decided to try it out. Here's the ingredients and instructions for everything.

I think it came out pretty good, and will definitely make it again. 



  • 10 ounces dried macaroni (or about 2⅔ cups)
  • 1 cup peeled/diced yellow potatoes (or russets)
  • ¼ cup peeled/diced carrots
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¾ to 1 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 pinch paprika
*The recipe called for 1/3 cup of diced onions, but I didn’t use it in my recipe*


  1. Soak cashews in water for about 20 minutes.
  2. Cook macaroni according to package instructions
  3. Drain, and set aside.
  4. Bring several cups of water to boil in a small pot. Place chopped potatoes, carrots, and in the boiling water, and cook for about 10-15 minutes. Chopped the veggies small so they will get softer faster
  5. When veggies are soft enough to blend, place them in your blender. Add ¾ cup of that cooking water to your blender, along with your remaining ingredients.
  6. Blend until smooth.
  7. Pour sauce over your cooked macaroni noodles in a dish of your choice, taste for salt, and serve immediately.
