Macaroni and “Cheese”
(From PETA Member Zsuzsanna Dever of Leander, Texas )

Number of Servings: 6


    1⁄2 lb. macaroni
    1 1⁄2 cups nondairy creamer or plain soy milk
    3 Tbsp. vegan margarine
    3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
    5 slices American-style soy cheese
    2 tsp. salt
    1⁄2 tsp. garlic powder
    1⁄2 tsp. white pepper
    1⁄2 tsp. dried dill
    2 Tbsp. flour
    1⁄4 cup water
    1 2.8-oz. can Durkee French-fried onions pulverized in a blender


Prepare the macaroni according to package directions, leaving it al dente or slightly undercooked. Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan, mix together the creamer or soy milk, margarine, yeast, “cheese” slices, salt, garlic powder, white pepper, and dill with a wire whisk and bring it to a boil.

In a small Tupperware container, place the flour and water, cover, and shake until well blended. Add this to the sauce pan when the mixture comes to a boil and whisk until smooth.

Return mixture to a boil, lower heat, and simmer until slightly thickened. Then remove from heat and gently stir in macaroni to coat. Transfer macaroni mixture to a medium casserole dish, sprinkle the fried onions evenly over the top, and bake, uncovered, at 375°F for 20-30 minutes until browned and bubbly.

NOTE: I used different french fried onions for this, you can reduce, change or remove the topping for much lower fat. Also, the soy cheese I used was really high in sodium, so again play around with the brands to see what you like and is best for your personal health goals. I'm planning to try Daiya next. :)
