Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Pasta Ingredients

6-8 cups water for boiling, salted

12 ounces quinoa or spelt elbow macaroni (or your favorite macaroni)

 

Cheese Sauce Ingredients

1/3 cup non-hydrogenated buttery spread (Earth Balance brand)

1/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

21⁄2 cups almond milk (So Delicious brand)

2/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes

1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt

1⁄2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 tablespoon light miso paste

1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons mustard, stone ground or German

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bring salted water to a boil in a large (6-quart) pot. Add macaroni and cook as described on package, about 7-9 minutes.

For the sauce: Heat a medium (4-quart) pot over medium heat. Add butter and flour. Whisk together to form a paste, creating a roux. Add almond or soymilk, nutritional yeast, sea salt, black pepper, garlic, miso, lemon juice and mustard. Cook for about 7 minutes, stirring constantly, until sauce is thick and creamy.

Once macaroni is finished cooking, drain and add to pot with sauce. Mix thoroughly to coat. Place mixture in a greased 8 x 8 baking dish, or 6 personal ramekins or cocottes, and top with homemade bread crumbs. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until bubbles appear in center of dish. Serve warm from the oven.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
