Mac n’ Cheese

with Thyme Roasted Mushrooms & Tomato Cream

Tomato cream and herby mushrooms elevate your favorite childhood dish. Nutritional yeast, a deactivated yeast that’s a great source of B vitamins (except for B12), imparts a nutty, cheesy flavor rivaling that of parmesan. We combine it with pepitas for a rich, crunchy topping.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Roast the onion and mushrooms

Preheat oven to 450°F. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil for pasta. Add sliced onion, mushrooms, thyme, 1 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper to baking dish and toss. Roast until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil). TIP: For the 4-serving meal, roast the mushrooms on a separate baking sheet and add back to the baking dish in step 6.

2
Make the sauce

Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add diced onion, garlic, miso paste, and a pinch of salt and pepper and stir. Cook until onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add flour and stir. Add almond milk and tomato powder, whisk, and bring sauce to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to blender and set aside.

3
Cook the pasta

Add pasta to boiling water, stir, and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta, rinse under cold water to stop cooking process, and return to same pot, off heat.

4
Finish the sauce

Add cheddar and a pinch of salt and pepper to blender with sauce and blend cheese sauce until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.

5
Make the pepita parmesan

Combine pumpkin seeds, nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt in small bowl and mix pepita parmesan.

6
Finish and serve

Add cheese sauce to pot with pasta and stir. Transfer pasta to baking dish with thyme roasted mushroom mixture and stir to combine. Sprinkle with pepita parmesan and bake until hot and bubbling, 7 to 10 minutes. Divide mac n’ cheese between large plates. Tuck in!
