I honestly would find it hard to believe that someone could be lazier than I have been today. It’s so bad that Anzia has taken it upon herself to make dinner. Homemade Mac & Cheese, which is definitely worth getting out of bed for.
The recipe she made is one she created before. You can see the recipe here. All the ingredients are staples in our kitchen including the Fried Onion Pieces. Trader Joe’s only sells them for a few months in the winter so we try to buy a month to make it through the year. I think we over bought last year because after tonight we still have two left.
Here is the recipe:
Anzia’s Mac N’ Cheese Ingredients:
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp yellow miso
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp white balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp paprika
2 1/2 tbsp tamari
1/3 cup vegan butter
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cups cashews (soaked for 2 hours)
1/4 cup walnuts (soaked for 2 hours)
1 lb elbow macaroni
Fried onion pieces (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Rinse cashews and walnuts. In a blender, blend cashews and walnuts with just enough water to cover the top, on high until creamy.
In a one cup liquid measuring cup mix ingredients from lemon juice to tamari. Add water to equal one cup. In a sauce pan melt butter over low heat. Slowly whisk in flour to create a roux. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in nutritional yeast mixture. Remove from heat. Add cashew/walnut cream. Cook macaroni according to directions.
Add cooked macaroni to nutritional yeast mixture then put in a casserole dish. Sprinkle fried onion pieces over it. Bake for 25 minutes or until brown on top. Serve and enjoy!
