Soy-Free Vegan Mac and Cheese

A quick and easy vegan mac and cheese that doesn't use tofu — or fat! Miso can have soy in it, so be careful when selecting your miso if you have an allergy or dietary need (chickpea miso is soy-free!).

Ingredients

  • Salt, for cooking the pasta
  • 1 1/4 Cup whole-wheat pasta
  • 1 1/4 Cup non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 Cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow miso paste
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 Teaspoon turmeric

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.

Cook the pasta according to the package directions, immediately drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside. Whisk all of the remaining ingredients together in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a near boil and reduce the heat to low. Stirring occasionally, allow the sauce to thicken. Combine with the macaroni, stirring to coat. 

Vegan Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Vegan Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
