When Dr. D. is in the kitchen, we eat healthy, whole foods mainly from recipes in The China Study Cookbook. It's a great cookbook and the food is always delicious but sometimes you just want old fashioned comfort food!
Enter Creamy Macaroni and Cashew Cheese from The Vegan Table. Creamy, decadent and delicious! If you really want to splurge, crumble potato chips on top before you put it in the oven. I tried to compensate for that sin by adding 16 ounces of steamed broccoli to the mixture.
Some things to know; 1) I baked mine with good results but I'm sure it would be just as delicious using the stove-top method, 2) this will fill up a large food processor so be prepared, and 3) I gave this an A for availability of ingredients but it doesn't mean you'll have everything on hand. We always have nutritional yeast, miso paste and raw cashews in our kitchen but understand that many non-vegans may not. A trip to your local Wegmans or health food store is all that's needed to stock your kitchen. If you're blessed with a Trader Joe's in your area, the cost for raw cashews there is unbeatable. We stock up whenever we make our pilgrimage to TJ's.
