Vegan Mac and Cheese

A few weeks ago, my daughter’s friend (a six-year-old boy). told his mother that he wanted to stop eating meat because he doesn’t like the thought of eating animals.  Since then, he has been asking about vegetarianism/veganism.  Last week, I offered to make him dinner; his favorite dish, just veganized.  And, he told me he wanted me to make macaroni and cheese.

Just then, I remembered this awesome vegan restaurant in Atlanta called, Soul Vegetarian.  They make the best macaroni and cheese!  Even regular cheese-lovers and meat-eaters love the food at this place.

So today, that little boy came over and I made Soul Vegetarian’s vegan mac and cheese, baked Brussels sprouts, and fresh-baked whole wheat bread.

Original recipe:

-16 oz. whole wheat noodles

-4 cups soy milk

-3 tablespoons of yellow mustard

-10 cloves of garlic

-2 teaspoons of paprika

-1 oz. sea salt

-2 cups of nutritional yeast

-1.5 cups of soy bean vegetable oil

-parsley flakes for garnish

I am happy to say that no one missed the cow-milk cheese.  This cruelty-free mac and cheese is super cheesy and delicious!

Today, I made mac and cheese but altered Soul Vegetarian’s recipe a bit.  I reduced the amount of oil and salt then added raw wheat germ, cashews and milk.
