Vegan Chili Mac

Submitted by: LEGALGRL

Introduction

This is a twist on a vegan macaroni and cheese recipe I found on vegandad.com. The pinto beans and chili powder add a southwestern flavor. Chilis can be added if a spicier sauce is desired.

Ingredients

    1 can (12 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
    1 T. olive oil
    1 T. yellow or white miso paste
    1/2 c. cashews
    1 T. chili powder
    1 t. salt
    2 T. dehydrated onion flakes
    6 T. nutritional yeast
    1 t. smoked paprika
    1 t. turmeric
    1/2 c. soy milk

    1 1/2 c. macaroni elbows
    1 1/2 c. sliced baby carrots
    1/2 small zucchini

Directions

Place beans, olive oil, miso, cashews, chili powder, salt, onion flakes, nutritional yeast, paprika and turmeric in blender. Begin blending and add soy milk through the vent cap in lid slowly until desired consistency. Add more or less soy milk as needed for a thick but smooth sauce.

Fill a medium saucepan halfway with hot water and bring to a boil. Cook carrots and macaroni elbows together for 7 to 8 minutes or until just tender. Meanwhile, shred zucchini using the large holes in a cheese grater. Drain noodles and carrots. Put zucchini directly into bottom of hot empty pan. Pour noodles and carrots on top of zucchini and let stand for 2 minutes. Add sauce and stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Makes 4 1-cup servings.

Note: If you anticipate leftovers, do not add sauce before storing. The noodles will absorb the moisture in the sauce leaving it overly dry.
