Creating the Vegan Macaroni Cheese Bake

  1. Wash your hands
  2. Soak the 150g Cashew Nuts in freshly boiled water for at least an hour.
  3. Peel and dice the Butternut Squash. 200g is usually just under half a Butternut Squash
  4. Drain the soaked Cashew Nuts and put them into a pan with the diced Butternut Squash, along with 4 tsp Crushed Garlic and 2 tsp Rice Vinegar
  5. Cover with water and simmer until the Squash is soft (this will take roughly 30 minutes)
  6. Drain the ingredients in colander
  7. Gently warm 500ml Soya Milk with 1 tsp Liquid Smoke (do not let this get too hot)
  8. In a blender add the drained ingredients along with 1 tsp Paprika, 2 tbsp Miso Paste, 3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes, 1 tsp Dijon Mustard & half of the warmed Soy Milk
  9. Blend for 1-2 minutes
  10. Then pour in the rest of the Soy Milk & blend for a further 1-2 minutes
  11. Pour mixture into a large bowl/jug & season to taste with Salt and Pepper
  12. Cook 200g Macaroni to the packet instructions
  13. When drained add 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  14. Add the cooked Macaroni to the Vegan Cheese Sauce and add any vegetables. Give it all a good stir & pour into a suitable dish to bake.
  15. Sprinkle over Breadcrumbs & place in the oven on Gas 5 for 30 minutes or until the Breadcrumbs are browned.
