    The Cheezy Sauce

    The Mac


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions. When the pasta is ready, drain and set aside.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, prepare the Cheezy Sauce.
    4. 4
      Whisk the broth and flour in a measuring cup with a fork until dissolved.
    5. 5
      Saute the oil and garlic in a saucepan over medium-low heat about 2 minutes, stirring often and being careful not to burn the garlic.
    6. 6
      Add the thyme, salt, and pepper, and cook for about 15 seconds. Add the broth, turmeric, and nutritional yeast, raising the heat to medium. Use a whisk and stir constantly. The mixture will start bubbling and thickening in about 3 minutes; if it doesn’t, turn the heat on a bit higher.
    7. 7
      Once the mixture starts bubbling and thickening, stir and cook for about 2 more minutes.
    8. 8
      Add the lemon juice and mustard and stir well. The mixture should resemble a thick, melty cheese.
    9. 9
      Taste for salt (you may need more), turn off the heat, and cover the pan to keep it warm.
    10. 10
      Now that the sauce is ready, begin assembling:.
    11. 11
      Crumble the tofu into an 11x13 inch baking dish. Mash the tofu with your hands until it resembles ricotta cheese. Mix in the salt, olive oil, and lemon juice.
    12. 12
      Add 1/2 cup Cheezy Sauce to the tofu and stir.
    13. 13
      Add the pasta to the tofu, along with 3 more cups of sauce, and stir well.
    14. 14
      Smooth the top of the pasta mixture and press it down with a spatula to level it.
    15. 15
      Pour the remaining sauce over the pasta and smooth again.
    16. 16
      Bake for 30 minutes; the top of the macaroni should be slightly browned.
    17. 17
      Let sit for 20 minutes to cool and firm up.
    18. 18
    19. 19
      For even more comfort food deliciousness, top it with toasted breadcrumbs before going into the oven.
    20. 20
      Make it even more nutritious with the addition of 4 cups of your favorite greens, chopped small - Spinach is divine.
    21. 21
      I try to use less fat when I cook. Reducing the oil with the tofu mixture to just a scant teaspoon was still perfectly delicious.

      This was a bit too lemony for my taste. When I make it again, I will probably omit all or most of the lemon juice, then it will be perfect. It's very creamy and filling, and it's a good thing that it doesn't contain as much fat as my favorite nut-based vegan mac & cheese recipes.
