My Mushu!

One of my very, very best friends is such a cool cat. We both LOVE watching the Disney hit “Mulan” and the classic “The Wiz” together! He does a GREAT, “I am the great stone dragon! I will go forth and fetch Mulan!” imitation! It is an instant pick-me-up for any day! He is so down to earth and extremely intellectual. He is also a PHENOMENAL trumpet player and is a member of the world reknowned Marching 100! Recently, Daniel transitioned to a vegan diet. It was very important for me to learn some tasty vegan dishes to fill his tummy. I’ve developed vegan cupcakes, vegan “cheesecakes”, roasted stuffed peppers, and yes, even a variation of macaroni and cheese!

Vegan Mac and Cheese

Ingredients:

    1 1/2 cups of plain soy milk
    1 cup of water
    1/4 cup of tamari or soy sauce
    1 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon sea salt

   1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    1/4 of a block of firm tofu
    1 cup of vegetable oil
    1 1/2 lbs macaroni
    1 dollop of mustard

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Boil water in a big pot for the pasta. Blend every ingredient except for the macaroni noodles into a food processor or blender. Once the pasta has boiled for 8 minutes, drain and place in large baking dish. Pour the blended sauce over the noodles and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot and enjoy!

    Hmm. I have been trying to transition to a vegan diet for the past couple of months, but I couldn’t fathom how I could get by without wonderful cheese. I will have to try this recipe. It sounds great, thanks!

    1. I hope your transition is going well!!!
