This homemade all-natural creamy vegan Mac & Cheese uses less than 10 ingredients and around 45 minutes from scratch or 20 minutes, with the prepped sauce!



  • 2 cups/200 gr macaroni pasta
  • 1/2 cups cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 butternut squash


  1. To make the vegan “cheese” sauce, begin by roasting 1/2 butternut squash at 180ยบ for 30 minutes-40 minutes, till tender.
  2. Scoop out the butternut squash flesh into a high-speed food processor or blender.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
  4. Add a bit of water to achieve the consistency you like – more runny or not. Voila! Delicious vegan cheese sauce!
  5. Boil the pasta following the package instructions.
