I live around the corner from the Soul Veg restaurant and this is definitely not the recipe they use. I would recommend not only cutting the tumeric in half but toasting (30s on a hot, dry skillet--taken off the heat) it lightly to get rid of some of the strong flavor. I added 1/4 cup of soymilk to the final mixture. Instead of just salt, I used VegeSalt and ground black pepper. Also, this is the soul food version of mac and chees that's more like a casserole than the Kraft version. If you're not used to that, you won't understand the texture difference.
Not the same recipe from the Soul Veg restaurants--not even close. That said, creaminess is good for a vegan mac & "cheese.". I urge cutting turmeric in half (too yellow at posted dose, and the taste is too pronounced). Do not skimp on pasta, err toward more. Taste is missing something... Maybe purÃ©e some onion & garlic? Also, too much tahini... maybe down 1/4th? As is is not for company, but a strong foundation.
Awful. I'm judging it against Kraft, but I would not eat it. It tastes like what it is.
Wow a vegan mac and cheese recipe that I actually liked! I blended the cheese sauce with one box (300g) of cooked flax omega 3 rotini noodles. I might try using less noodles and just use the recommend amount in this recipe next time to see the difference. I also sprinkled on some salt and freshly ground pepper before serving.
