Oi! Oi! Everyone!

Here’s one recipe for mac and cheese without any cheese!! It’s really good for cold days!


You will need:

  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 200g of macaroni pasta
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 250g of butternut squash
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 40g of unsalted raw cashew nuts

  • 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp of mustard
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon

Before starting this recipe you need to soak the cashew nuts overnight, they need to be “soft”.

  1. Peel and chop the butternut squash.
  2. To make the cheese sauce, place a saucepan of boiling water over a high heat. Put a lidded steamer basket over the top and steam the butternut squash until soft (around 15 to 20 minutes).
  3. Cook the pasta according to the instructions, drain and rinse and set aside.
  4. Place a frying pan over medium heat and fry the onion in the coconut butter for about 5 minutes, add the garlic and continue to fry for another minute.
  5. Drain the soaked cashew nuts and add to a blender with the steamed butternut squash, onion, garlic, non-dairy milk, nutritional yeast, mustard, nutmeg and lemon juice.
  6. Blend until totally smooth.
  7. Stir into the cooked pasta and heat it on low heat until warm.
