We have been experimenting more with vegan cheese sauces. A lot of them have a cashew base but this one is a little different. We made this sweet potato "cheese" sauce in our Vitamix. It is a quick and easy recipe. The Mac & Cheese doesn't even need to bake.
To make the vegan cheese sauce combine the following and blend until smooth:
- 2 cooked sweet potatoes (we trimmed the skin off ours and steamed in the instant pot but you can also bake or boil)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- juice of 1 lemon
Stir the sauce in with about 8 ounces (half a box) of cooked macaroni noodles and serve.
