you gotta try this mac and cheeze

I was scanning through LiveJournal's VEGAN FOOD PICS and came across this beautiful looking mac and cheeze. It almost looked too good to be true so I had to test it out. Oh my god. This seriously was the best vegan mac and cheeze I have yet to try. It had just the right amount of nutritional yeast (meaning, it wasn't over powering) and was super creamy. The recipe can be found here. I used original/plain hemp milk instead of soy milk, shell pasta and added both black pepper and cayenne pepper. I used crushed crackers on top, although I'm sure toasted bread crumbs would be great too.

Yum, that looks delicious! I should try making some since I've yet to find the perfect vegan mac 'n cheese

Kelly Mahoney said...

I'm really impressed with this dish. You saw my pathetic attempt at vegan, so I'll have to give this one a shot. I wouldn't have thought a vegan dish would look this creamy and savory. I really need to try it!

Pink Theory said...

Wow! That really does look "cheese" like! I'll have to try this one.

NO WAY. My friends are trying to get me to enter their vegan mac n cheese competition this weekend. Sounds like I have a recipe! hah.

Droolworthy. Wow. I am making this, this weekend, for sure! I love that it doesn't require the making of a nut cheese--the last mac and cheese I tried did, and it was yum, but this would be easier and it just looks...incredibly good. I WANT IT NOW.

mmm, I haven't had mac n' "cheese" is months practically!! the picture alone convinced me that I need to get into the kitchen and make some soon!! :0)

Hilary said...

this looks so delicious! and so unhealthy, but hey comfort food, right? :)

Hey everyone! I hope anyone who makes this has the same kind of luck I did with it. If you do make it, let me know how it turned out. Jared reheated it in the oven and it lost it's creaminess, but it still tasted amazing!
Have a rockin weekend.

The link to the recipe doesn't seem to be working. *pout* I really wanna make this, especially since I've made and bought some pretty awful vegan mac and cheese. And I have a carton of Belsoy vegan cream in the fridge begging to be in this dish...

stonielove said...

ooo, that sound great! a perfect comfort food :)

the pleasantly plump vegan said...

You convinced me with the picture alone-- I'll try it!

Hey! I know this is an old post, but hopefully you get those email notifications when people post comments like I do. :) I'm wondering how many people you think this serves... I made this once (it was awesome), and think I halved it to serve about four... But I can't frickin' remember & my brother wants to make it for a dinner party potluck tonight (yay!! He's not even a vegetarian, let alone vegan).

Do you think it would serve 10 people for side-dishes, or should we double it? I originally thought I could multiply the recipe by 1.5, but that seems like possible trouble... Let me know what you think! Thank you!

I've been following your blog for quite a while and enjoying your wealth of good recipes. When Foodista announced that they are going to publish the best food blogs in a full color book that will be published by Andrews McMeel Publishing Fall 2010, I naturally thought of you. This recipe would be a good submission! You can enter here: http://www.foodista.com/blogbook/submit
