Ingredients

  • 2 cups potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups carrots chopped
  • 3 cups spinach fresh
  • 1 pound pasta
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2.5 tsp garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk unsweetened - we like oat milk!
  • 2 medium tomatoes sliced thinly (we used 1 large beefsteak tomato)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1.5 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter melted

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package, and then drain and set aside.
  • While pasta is cooking, in a separate pot boil potatoes and carrots together. Boil until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In food processor or blender add potatoes, carrots, 2 tbsp nutritional yeast, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2.5 tsp minced garlic, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1 tsp sea salt, and 1/2 cup non-dairy unsweetened milk. Process or blend until as smooth as possible, it can take 5 minutes or so.
  • In a large pot or bowl (we used the pot we cooked the pasta in) combine pasta, spinach, and cheesy sauce. Stir it up til it's mixed well.
  • Dump the mac and cheese into a baking dish. Spread it evenly.
  • In a small/medium bowl add 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 1 tbsp melted butter, and 1.5 tsp italian seasoning. Stir well with a fork.
  • Cover the top of the mac and cheese with slices of tomato. Then sprinkle breadcrumbs on the top.
  • Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until the breadcrumbs brown.
