Vegan Mac & Cheese
Vegan ‘Mac & Cheese’ (gluten free too)
When you read the ingredients, you’ll realize this is not a recipe for actual macaroni and cheese. But I bet you’ll amazed how similar it tastes, though totally free of wheat and dairy. Just fresh veggies in a simple recipe you can throw together any night of the week. Yummy comfort food made with an unlikely pair: cauliflower and pumpkin.
Just prep the vegetables, pop them in the oven, and enjoy!
Vegan Mac and Cheese Recipe
1 onion- diced
1 head cauliflower- washed and chopped into small bites
1 small pumpkin- flesh cubed (approx 6 cups)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 pinches nutmeg
Heat oven to 400F (200C).
Prepare the veggies. For the pumpkin, I cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, then cut off all of the shell. The remaining flesh gets cubed.
Place all of the ingredients in a large baking dish and toss with a generous amount of olive oil.
Roast in the hot oven for 45 minutes. You can give it a stir halfway through for even cooking.
Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
Enjoy straight up as a vegan macaroni and cheese bowl, or served with rice, gluten-free pasta, or regular pasta.
