DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Drain the macaroni and put into a microwave-safe dish.
  • Put the soy cheese (or real cheese if you do the non-vegan option) into the dish and mix well.
  • Mix the nutritional yeast with the soymilk and pour in the dish too.
  • Add the paprika and mustard powder and mix well again.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
