    the80srule's Note:

    I like making this with real cheese but found it works just as well with soy cheez! Amy's makes good vegan mac and cheese but can get you can replicate it at home. This is a good size to make for just one person but if you have guests or are making for more people, doubling works. EDIT: After much chat in the Vegetarian & Vegan forum about soy cheeses, I feel I should edit this description (not the actual recipe) to inform purist vegans and/or those with extreme intolerances to dairy products to be wary about soy cheeses containing casein and other milk products. Sorta defeats the purpose! The purely vegan "cheese" that got the best reviews in the thread is Daiya. There was one truly vegan cheese I used to get at Stop & Shop that melts pretty well, but the flavor would be lacking a little hence the 2 tablespoons of nooch helps thicken the soymilk (since it won't thicken under heat itself) and give a flavor and cheeziness boost. Plus lots of nutrients for very little calories!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 2



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil 1 dry cup of macaroni in salted water for about 7-8 minutes-- an al dente texture is important or else this gets too mushy.
    2. 2
      Drain the macaroni and put into a microwave-safe dish.
    3. 3
      Put the soy cheese (or real cheese if you do the non-vegan option) into the dish and mix well.
    4. 4
      Mix the nutritional yeast with the soymilk and pour in the dish too.
    5. 5
      Add the paprika and mustard powder and mix well again.
    6. 6
      Microwave for 2-3 minutes or until all the soy cheese has melted. Mix well, and if it looks like there's still liquid at the bottom from the soymilk, nuke again for another minute or so and mix again.
    7. 7
      Yields about 2 one-cup servings but sometimes if I'm really hungry I just eat the whole thing out of the container and call it dinner!
    8. 8
      On that note, if you'd like to make it a small one-dish meal, try adding some chopped broccoli, tomato slices, and/or dulse leaves or flakes for "bacon" since those 3 things commonly are baked in mac & cheese dishes.

      Since making this for the first time a few weeks ago I compulsively referred to it and make it quite often now! I increase the amount of mustard and haven't tried it with the yeast (mainly because I haven't actually had any in the cupboards when I've made it) but it still rocks! :D

      Not bad AT ALL! The only change I added was to put a bit of Old Bay seasoning in the mix. It is a staple in my house and it sure brought a unique flavor to the dish. I will be making this again!
