chris manor's mac and cheese and zine
Tonight I made Chris Manor's vegan mac and cheese. It was really, really tasty. It turned out better than expected and is super easy. Here is Chris' recipe in his own words:
The "Cheese" sauce
1 Tbsp Earth Balance
1/2 Cup Nutritional Yeast
1 Tbsp White Flour
3/4 Cup of Soy milk
1 Tbsp of Yellow Mustard
2 tsp of Braggs(or Soy/Tamari sauce)
1 tsp of Salt
First, in a sauce pan, on low heat add the Earth Balance, Nutritional Yeast and Flour. Let that Earth Balance melt and mix with the Nutritional Yeast and Flour, stir it around. Then add the Soy Milk. Do it slowly, adding a cold liquid to a hot pan will cause some sizzling, so do it slow. Stir it around and get a nice consistent mixture. Then add everything else. The Mustard, Braggs and Salt. You can raise the heat a little bit and let it cook until it starts to boil/bubble and spit at you. Add the pasta, I like elbow noodles the best for this. Stir it up and serve. You can add more salt, maybe garlic, your favorite hot sauce. It's up to you.
Nutritional Yeast is great on just about everything that you want to add a cheesy flavor too, just sprinkle it on whatever. It can be found at the bulk bin sections at most Health/Natural food stores(Good Earth, Sunflower Market, Whole Foods).
Earth Balance is a vegan butter substitute. You can find it at the above stores in the refrigerated dairy sections. It comes in stick form, or in a plastic container.
Braggs can be found at most stores. This is a staple of my diet. It's like soy sauce but it provides crucial, essential amino acids. Great stuff.
