Gluten-free and vegan mac and cheese

I made this the other day because I was craving comfort food mac and cheese. Although I wouldn’t consider this healthy by any means, it was delicious and tastes like the real thing. I think the less processed food in your diet, the better. If you want to cheat, then this should  take care of the craving without the guilt.


1 or 4 if your a generous person

Preparation Time:

30 min

1 box shell pasta ( I used Ancient grains gluten-free pasta)
10 cups water for boiling
4-6 oz Daiya cheddar style wedge, grated
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 cup vegan sour cream
1/4 cup buttery spread like Earth Balance
1 1/2-2 cups rice milk, depending on how creamy you want it
dried basil

1. Boil water in large, add pasta, cook for 15 min and drain.
2. Put the pasta back in the pot. Add all the ingredients together and heat over low-medium heat until combined and delicious. Season with the salt, pepper, paprika, and basil to taste. You can also add red pepper flakes if you’re looking for a little flair.
