  • Summary

    This Homemade "Boxed" Macaroni and Cheese comes together in the same amount of time as the store bought version!

    Ingredients

    • 2 T nutritional yeast
    • 1/2 t salt
    • 1/2 t dried garlic powder
    • 1 t dried onion powder
    • 1/2 t annatto powder/paste (for color, completely optional, we get ours at a local Mexican market)
    • 1/2 t paprika
    • 4 - 6 T vegan butter (I use Earth Balance. I used 4 T, 6 T will make it a slightly creamier pasta.)
    • 1/2 c non dairy milk
    • 1 pound pasta, cooked according to package directions (I like small noodles like macaroni, you can use gluten free too—my favorite is Tinkyada)
