Vegan Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese

Let’s make a healthy vegan, gluten-free macaroni and cheese

Traditionally, mac and cheese is high in saturated fat and sodium due to the amount of butter, cheese, and milk it contains, which makes it a relatively unhealthy dish.

This means it is also likely to be very calorific as fats are calorie dense.

Let’s switch to a nutrient-dense vegan gluten free mac and cheese that is loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats. 

 Ingredients for the cheese sauce:

  • ¾ cup sweet potato (I buy it organic frozen)
  • ¾ cup butternut squash (I buy it organic frozen)
  • ½ cup raw cashews (soaked in hot water for at least one to two hours)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup water

One box gluten free macaroni


Wash the cashews thoroughly until the water comes out crystalline and place all the ingredients in the Vitamix and voila the cheese sauce is ready to enjoy with a gluten free macaroni pasta.

Cook the pasta as directed in the package and add the sauce above.  It will make a very delicious macaroni and cheese dish.

Enjoy it!
