Delightful Mac and Cheese

What you need: 

3/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup water
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup flour
1 cup uncooked pasta

What you do: 

1. Put water on to boil for pasta. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. While water is boiling, put first 7 ingredients (through pepper) in the blender and blend until well blended.
2. Add water and soy sauce and blend more. Heat oil in skillet, and then add flour to make a roux. Stir constantly until you don't have any lumps. Put pasta in boiling water and cook according to package directions.
3. Pour the cheesy sauce you made in the blender into roux and stir until it is warm and at your desired consistency (if it is too watery, let it reduce some). When it gets to that consistency, remove from heat.
4. Drain pasta through colander and pour pasta into the pan of cheesy sauce. Transfer mixture into oven safe dish, and put it into the oven for 10 or so minutes. Enjoy.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

It actually tastes cheesey, which is fantastic. I did have some trouble with the liquid, which there seemed to be waaaay to much of, and I ended up draining a bunch. Created a kind of "cheese mush" but still really good!

see, this is what i am afraid of with my recipes, since i don't measure. i usually make a bunch of 'cheese' so that i can reduce it either while cooking on stove top or while baking. i am glad you liked it, though!

ohhh, i'm so glad you guys liked it! i am always afraid about the measurements i put up because i don't measure anything.
gardengate, i try to eat mostly raw and this is one of my downfalls :(
baypuppy, i have subbed cashews and walnuts before... it is just something to add more depth than a NY only sauce.

The measurements you had were pretty much perfect!  I think I will leave out the parsley next time just to get rid of the green color.  I did add more garlic to mine, but it tasted just great!

fantastic recipe! DR and I really enjoyed it. I subbed raw cashews for the pine nuts (what I had on hand) and left the parsley out. I also used fresh garlic. Will make again! (and again and again!)

Hi there!  Just wanted to let you know that I'm a vegan too!  I do have splurging days like once a month on some dairy, but other than that, I'm a fruit and veggie person!  I just made this recipe for my family, because I was looking for an easy recipe that I could make quickly, and of course that was vegan!  I must tell you, this is a GREAT recipe!  Mine turned out to be more of a green color.  When I went and gave a spoon to my mom, who is also a vegan, she looked at it and then back at me for about 10 seconds.  Finally, I just said, try it!  She put it in her mouth and her eyes lit up!!  She said to me, "I had intended on eating nothing but raw today, but now I can't because I've got to have more!"
  So good job on a great recipe!  I've printed it and it will be on my list of keepers.  By the way, I looked on your profile and it said that you were 22 and that your name is Hannah.  Hannah has been one of my picks for one of my daughters when I get married...I'm 20 now.  Sorry for talking too much.  (smiling)

Thank you again for posting this!!!
