Fat Free Vegan’s Easy Macaroni and Cheeze

I spotted Fat Free Vegan’s Easy Macaroni and Cheeze recipe on twitter and thought I might give it a try. At first I was going to make mine instead, but I had already been busy making veggie samosas and didn’t have enough energy left for whisking a roux. Also, I wasn’t too sure about the flavor profile of the beer we had in the fridge pairing well with mac n cheese. Two more things made me excited about trying hers. 1. the sauce is made entirely in the blender – EASY! 2. I was out of almond milk and figured since I was making it in the Vita-Mix anyway, I could add almonds to it, if necessary.

Turns out I didn’t need to add any nuts at all. It was perfectly fine and creamy with just substituting [more] water for non-dairy milk! My other changes were about a tbsp. of dijon mustard instead of mustard seed, barley miso instead of white, another 1/4 c. of nutritional yeast, more cayenne pepper, and about a tablespoon of leftover pepper jack Daiya. I served it sprinkled with a little vegan parm on top.

Result: I loved how easy it was to prepare, and was pleasantly surprised at the creamy texture. It’s a great base recipe for you to tweak to your taste! Keeper!

Appetite for Reduction’s Mac and Trees… kinda

Published April 23, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

So this is AFR’s Mac and Trees recipe…sorta. I took the liberty of skipping the trees (cut up broccoli) and using a 12oz bag of frozen “mediteranean”  blend vegetables instead. Since I used [whole wheat] maccaroni pasta, the veggies and pasta took the same time to cook, so I added them in all at once upon the water boiling.

I had a couple of tablespoons of Daiya cheddar in a bag in the freezer that I mixed in too, along with some vegan parm, cayenne, smoked paprika and smoked pepper.

Pretty darn good for being so low in fat!

The dry ingredients waiting for the water addition. Oh, and I used a bouillon cube in place of the broth powder.

Good, and filling, and FAST!
