Vegan Cheese Mac Recipe Ingredients needed:

- One head of medium-sized cauliflower
- One tablespoon of Dijon Mustard
- Two teaspoons of nutritional yeast
- One bowl of water-soaked cashew nuts
- Half teaspoon of turmeric powder
- A quarter teaspoon of Himalayan salt
- A quarter teaspoon of white pepper
- A cup of soya milk or almond milk ( approximately 250 ml )
- Two tablespoons of light soy sauce
- 50/55g pasta of your choice


Special kitchen appliance needed:

- A food processor

Let's Start With Our Vegan Mac Cheese:

- Wash the cauliflower thoroughly and chop it into small florets. Please put them in a steamer basket, set over the boiling water, cover and steam until tender to bite. It should take approximately eight minutes for the cauliflower florets to be fully tender.

- Transfer the cauliflower florets into the food processor.

- Next, add the Dijon mustard, nutritional yeast, soaked cashew nuts, turmeric powder, salt, white pepper, soy/almond milk, and light soy sauce into the food processor.

- Blend them all until smooth and creamy. Here goes your healthy ‘cheese sauce.’

- Meanwhile, cook the pasta of your choice in a pot of boiling water until al dente. Add a pinch of salt. It will help to speed up the process. Drain the cooked pasta and transfer it onto a pan.

- Add the ‘cheese sauce’ into the pan and lightly stir-fry the pasta using medium heat until the sauce covers the pasta evenly. This procedure should take about five minutes.

Your healthy vegan mac and cheese are now ready to be served! Enjoy!
