I had a random craving for some mac and cheese today but didn’t have the necessary ingredients for any of the mac and cheese recipes online. So, I decided to improvise…and it was glorious!
2 small-medium sweet potatoes, diced and boiled
1 red onion, chopped and boiled with the potatoes
10 grams of quick cook oatmeal (dry)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup non dairy milk
2 cloves of garlic, roasted
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic salt
Pinch of basil
Your prefered pasta, cooked
As stated in the ingredients, chop up your sweet potato and onion and boil until the potatoes are soft. Save the water from the boiling as you may need to use it to add to your sauce.
Add the sweet potatoes and onion to a blender. Roast your cloves of garlic in an oven for about 2 minutes. Remove the skin and add to the blender.
Add your nutritional yeast and oats to the blender as well as the spices. Mix until you have a smooth sauce. I had to add about 1/2 cup of the water from my potatoes so that the sauce would not be too thick.
This had a nice kick of spicy and garlic-y and cheesey. 10/10 would make again.
