The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces like this or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis!

How Do I Make Vegan Macaroni and Cheese with Nutritional Yeast?

  1. Cook macaroni according to package instructions. Drain and place macaroni noodles back in the pot they were cooked it. Set the pot aside, off the heat. 
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper, and add the carrots, potato, onion, lemon juice, and salt. Toss and roast for 30 minutes, flipping halfway.
  3. When vegetables are finished roasting, add to a blender with the reminder of the ingredients.
  4. Blend on high for 2 minutes until sauce is thick and creamy. If sauce is too thick, add an additional 1/4 cup of plant milk at a time until the sauce reaches desired consistency.
  5. Place the pot with the macaroni back on the stove top, and heat on low. Add in the cheese sauce and stir until noodles and sauce just begin to bubble. Remove from heat, dish into a bowl, and enjoy!
