Vegan Mac & Cheese

Sauteed Veggies

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • 1 small bell pepper sliced
  • 1/2 package mushrooms sliced in half
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup corn (we used frozen)
  • Tomato Diced


  • Boil a pot of salted water for your pasta. Cook pasta according to package. Then drain and set aside.
  • In the same pot or in a deep pan, melt 2 tbsp butter on low-medium heat.
  • Once butter is melted add 1/4 cup flour and whisk for about 30 seconds. Try to get the clumps out as best you can.
  • Add 2 cups non-dairy milk, 1/4 nutritional yeast, 1/2 tsp sea salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Cook on low-medium heat for 5-8 minutes and whisk regularly until the sauce starts to thicken up.
  • While the sauce is cooking, in a separate small pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil. Saute jalapeno, bell peppers, mushrooms, garlic powder, basil, and corn on medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
  • Combine pasta with the cheesy sauce and stir it up. Then stir in the sauted veggies and add the diced tomato.
