Day 28 of 30 recipes in 30 days
Day 28 and the end of another weekend. God, I love the weekends. Was craving some pasta tonight so thought I would try a new creamy pasta dish. The kids said it was the best yet!
This recipe uses one of my favourite ingredients, Nutritional Yeast which I get from Tenterfield Health. It is super easy too and a guaranteed kid pleaser.
Macaroni Cheese with Cashew Parmesan
½ cup raw cashew nuts
Smidge of salt
3 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
Blitz ingredients in grinder attachment of blender or in your processor.
1 onion peeled and roughly chopped
1 medium to large potato, peeled and diced
1 carrot peeled and diced
1 cup raw cashews – soaked for at least 4 hours
1/3 cup almond milk
1/3 cup vegetable stock
4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
500 grams of your favourite pasta
Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil and add onion, potato and carrot.
At same time bring a larger saucepan of water to the boil and add pasta.
Boil until vegetables are tender.
Drain and add all ingredients (apart from pasta) to blender.
Blitz until very smooth.
As soon as pasta is cooked, drain and add sauce to pasta.
Stir to combine and serve immediately.
Garnish with the cashew parmesan.
