My hubby has never been a fan of vegan cheese recipes, but when he tasted this one, he said it was a keeper. It's one of our favorite recipes and it's very easy to make. Guilt-free comfort food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place potatoes, carrots, water (should be enough to come about 1/2 inch from the top of the potatoes and carrots), salt, chicken seasoning, onion powder and garlic salt together in a pot, mix together, and cook on medium heat till potatoes and carrots are soft.
  3. While veggies are cooking, heat water for ziti noodles; when boiling add ziti noodles.
  4. Cook till al dente.
  5. When veggies are done, cool or add a couple ice cubes to cool it down.
  6. Blend together with nutritional yeast flakes and oil until smooth.
  7. Add more water if it's too thick, add more salt if needed, should be a little on the salty side as the pasta will absorb some of the salt.
  8. Drain the ziti noodles.
  9. Pour"cheese" sauce over ziti noodles in a casserole dish and mix inches.
  10. Place dish in oven and bake for 30 minutes.

I have made at least 20 different vegan mac and cheeses. This one is about average. It's got a wonderful, creamy texture, but I found it to be a little bland. Needs more cheese flavor! Sadly, my search for REALLY GOOD vegan mac and cheese continues.

What a wonderful treat! My son is allergic to dairy, egg, and soy, and misses creamy mac and cheese. I was so surprised when we made this dish. His eyes literally rolled back in his head when he took his first bite. Even my daughter and I (who are not vegan) loved the flavor and texture. We will definitely be having this on a regular basis. THANK YOU!

Excellent vegan cheese. Looks like gooey melted cheese. Tastes great and easy to make. We didn't put it in the oven; just mixed and served. My boys all loved it. The cheese would work good on Mexican dishes or enchiladas as well.
