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.

Servings:

1 or 4 if your a generous person

Preparation Time:

30 min

Ingredients:
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
salt
pepper
paprika
dried basil
Instructions:

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.
