I don’t miss cheese… but I love me some Mac and No Nuts Cheese. Several no dairy cheese recipes contain nuts for creaminess and nuts just have too much fat and calories for me. This mac and cheese is made with brown rice elbows and this yummy cheese sauce. You can use this sauce on tacos and burritos or dip some chips in it! It is good on potatoes and veggies! Use it anyway you would use a cheddar like cheese sauce. Stir in a little of your favorite salsa and you have nacho cheese sauce!
While your noodles are cooking (I use a 16 oz package of Tinkyada brown rice elbows cooked slightly al dente.
Combine the following ingredients in a sauce pot and use a whisk to stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly… then turn off heat or it will scorch.
1 cup non dairy milk
2 Tablespoons of cornstarch
2 Tablespoons of miso paste
1/3 cup of nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
A good dash of paprika or smoked paprika (what you like best)
When the pasta is done drain it and give it a quick rinse and add it back to the cooking pot. Stir in the cheese sauce. Not gonna lie… not exactly like cheese but delicious. I love it with a little ketchup! Try it!
