Vegan Wednesday Recipe!

Homemade Vegan Mac and Cheese
Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1 1/2 cups of plain soy milk
1 cup of water (you can cut this down and use vegan margarine to make a creamier sauce)
1/3 cup of tamari or soy sauce (you can cut this out if you don't want a lot of salt, or use low sodium soy sauce-available at Food For Thought)
1 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/4 of a block of firm (not silken) tofu
1 cup of canola or vegetable oil (I use olive oil)
1 1/2 lbs of pasta of your choice preferably macaroni
a relatively large baking pan (like a brownie pan)
1 dollop of mustard (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Boil water in a big pot for the pasta.
Blend all ingredients (minus pasta).
Once pasta is cooked-drain and put it in the baking pan.
Pour the cheese sauce over the pasta.
Bake until the top of the pasta looks slightly browned and crispy (about 15 minutes).

Serves: a lot
Preparation time: about 8 min.
To spice this up a bit, throw in veggie pepper or add fresh onions. Garlic is always a good choice too.

All of these ingredients are available at Food For Thought.
