    Gluten FreeVeganMac & CheezeEasy & gluten free & vegan & delicious. Sign me up.

    I’ve adopted a mostly plant-based diet and the difference in my everyday energy and health has been nothing short of amazing. I used to get sick with colds all the time. I haven’t been sick in over a year.

    Not to mention, I love using up leftover veggies. In this case, I had a bag of small, white potatoes (Yukon Gold) that needed to be used. Absolutely no way was I gonna throw them out.

    This dinner took me about 20 minutes to make. And I have a few cups of leftover “cheeze” sauce that I can use this week over everything including roasted potatoes, roasted veggies, rice, and pasta.


    Gluten Free Vegan Mac & Cheeze


    • 2 Yukon Gold medium potatoes, chopped
    • 1 medium carrot, chopped
    • small onion, chopped
    • 1/2 c. raw cashews
    • 1 1/2 c. boiling water (from pasta)
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1 tsp. onion powder
    • 1 tsp. sea salt
    • 1/4 c. nutritional yeast
    • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika, optional


    Cook your fave gluten free pasta. Meanwhile, boil potatoes for 2 minutes.

    Add carrot and boil for another 5 minutes.

    Add onion and boil for another 7 minutes or until potatoes are fork-soft.

    Drain vegetables, reserving water.

    Add cashews to blender jar. Works great in a Vitamix or Blendtec. Add all remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth consistency is reached. Pour over cooked pasta.

    Hello! Your recipe is nice. What brand of pasta do you use? Does every gluten-free pasta will fit to this recipe?

    Yup – any GF pasta will do!

    This looks delicious, Ellen! My daughters would love this recipe, and it would be perfect since we recently found out that our youngest is allergic to wheat.

    Lovely blog!
