Vegan Macaroni, Cheese and Broccoli


When I decided to focus on eliminating dairy and eggs from my diet, cheese was a hard sell.  I have always been a fan of macaroni and cheese. In college I would make it (from the blue box) and add in some sort of veg – broccoli, peas, cauliflower.  I was worried that my mac and cheese days were over.  I knew that there would be alternatives, but would they satisfy me as much as the real deal?

Gin over at Eat Healthy, Be Healthy has a great cheese sauce recipe.  It is vegan and low fat… made from vegetables, with no nuts or oils.  She calls it Life Changing Vegan Cheese Sauce, and I’d have to agree. I made this and couldn’t help licking the edges of the blender or the spoon afterwards.

Vegan Macaroni, Cheeze and Broccoli


1 box whole grain elbow macaroni

4 cups brocooli florettes

1 recipe Life Changing Vegan Cheese Sauce

salt & freshly ground pepper


Prepare the pasta according to package directions. In the last 3 minutes add the broccoli. Finish cooking and drain.

Add pasta and broccoli to a bowl and combine with the cheese sauce. Add salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
