Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese (Vegan + GF)

Try this vegan butternut squash mac and cheese if you are trying to avoid dairy but still crave this comfort food!

What You Need


    •       2 cups peeled and diced butternut squash (300 g)

    •       1/4 cup any unsweetened plant milk (65 ml)

    •       2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil*

    •       1 tsp onion powder

    •       1/2 tsp garlic powder

    •       1 or 1 1/2 tsp sea salt

    •       4 tbsp nutritional yeast

    •       1 tbsp lemon juice

    •       7 oz or 200 g pasta of your choice

    •       Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

What You Do

     1.     Steam the butternut squash for about 10 minutes or until it’s soft. We place a steamer basket in a pot, add some water and when it’s boiling we add the squash and cook it over medium-high heat. You can also boil or roast it.


    2.     Place the steamed squash in a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.

    3.     Cook the pasta according to package directions. We don’t add any salt, but it’s up to you! Cook the pasta while you’re steaming the squash, that way you’ll save some time.

    4.     Mix the pasta and the sauce in the pot.

    5.     We love to add some fresh parsley on top, but it’s optional.

    6.     Store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days or even freeze it. You can reheat this amazing dish, but add some milk because the sauce probably will be so thick.


    7.     Eat it!
