How do you make vegan sweet potato mac and cheese?
I know, vegan and cheese don’t always see eye to eye. Bear with me a moment while I explain. If you’re not vegan, or dairy free, chances are you may not have heard of the amazing ingredient called nutritional yeast. This magical and natural spice has cheesy flavour while providing a boost of B vitamins. It’s so versatile and can be added to so many dishes where a little extra cheesiness is needed! Such as this sweet potato mac and cheese for instance.
So to make the vegan cheese sauce, just roasted your sweet potatoes until fork tender. Meanwhile, sauté some onion and garlic. Then toss it all into a high speed blender along with some cashews, nutritional yeast, and the perfect seasoning blend. Voila! And just look at the deliciously creamy, velvety, mac and cheese sauce. YUM. I make this dish often, and every time it’s a struggle to not drink the sauce.
I like using Rotini for this dish because I find the sauce gets into every groove. So every single bite is loaded with delicious cheesy flavour. Of course, you can sub with any other pasta of your choice, including gluten free varieties. Either way, this dish is sure to satisfy the entire family.
So what are you waiting for to try this? This dairy free mac & cheese is quick and simple to make. It’s loaded with wholesome ingredients. And it tastes AMAZING. Give it a try! And as always, let me know what you think in the comments below.
