Low-fat, Cheezy, Vegan Pasta Recipe

This cheezy vegan pasta recipe is great for everyone who misses the creaminess of mac’n’cheese on a plant-based lifestyle. And you wouldn’t believe where the creaminess of this recipe comes from….

I’ve seen recipes similar to this, but I kind of tweaked it a little to my liking. And I think it tastes phenomenal! It’s super-rich and creamy without the heaviness of cream or cheese sauces. And so simple to make!

Ingredients:

  • pasta (I used corn pasta here, but you can use what you like, preferably not plain white pasta, though – maybe opt for whole wheat!)
  • 1 sweet potato (I used a small one, for more people, use a bigger one)
  • about 1/2 cup of your favorite plant-based milk (I used calcium-enriched oat milk)
  • 1 tsp of mustard
  • 2-3 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp of curry
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • optional: tomatoes, greens

Directions:

  1. First off, cook your pasta according to the package.
  2. Start with peeling the sweet potato. Steam or boil it until soft. Then in a tall bowl, blend together the sweet potato with the mustard, nutritional yeast (for the cheezyness!), curry, and salt/pepper with a handheld blender.
  3. Start with a little plant-based milk and add more until you achieve a nice creamy texture.
  4. Then mix up the pasta with the sauce in a big bowl.
  5. Finally, you can add some fresh tomatoes on top, or some greens or herbs, to add some freshness.
  6. Enjoy!
