Mac N Cheez

Good morning!

It is still dumping rain on us up here today.  So of course I busted out the trusty rain boots for my trip to work.

I love them.  They’re nothing special… I got them at Walmart about 4 or 5 years ago.  But they’ve held up well, and I they make rainy days a little brighter. 🙂

My breakfast today is pretty typical.

Notice the little green specks in my smoothie?  I think my VitaMix is dying.  A VitaMix green smoothie is usually solid colored because everything blends so well, so seeing spinach bits is a little disconcerting for me.  Doesn’t keep it from being delicious though.

I’ve also got some yerba mate with lemon juice.  Such a good wake-up brew.

As I mentioned in last night’s post, Keenan had some homemade vegan mac and cheese waiting for me when I got home.  My entire life, I have always been a huge mac and cheese lover.  Actually, during my last year of college, one of my most frequent study snacks was Easy Mac with some broccoli chopped up, all stuck in the microwave together.  As such a big fan of the regular version, I honestly wasn’t expecting too much, but he really impressed me with this dish.  It also definitely proved that he’s understanding the whole vegan cooking thing.

He even wrote down his recipe for me, but then he complained that someone would probably steal his recipe and go open up a restaurant somewhere.  I think he’s a little full of himself. 😉

Vegan Mac N Cheez

1 package tube-shaped pasta

1 cup Daiya cheddar flavor

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

1/8 cup sweet onion, diced

1/8 cup red bell pepper, diced

3 grape tomatoes, diced

Cook the pasta.  Drain, and return to the pan.  While still hot add the rest of the ingredients and mix until the Daiya is melted and everything is combined well.

This recipe was soooo amazing.  It was creamy and cheesy and everything I could have hoped for.  I ended up eating two big bowls, and I packed the leftovers to take for my dinner at work tonight.  It’s going to be so delicious that I’m already excited just thinking about it.  If you love mac and cheese anywhere near as much as I do, you should really try this recipe.  You won’t be disappointed.

Well, my rain boots and I are about to go brave the streets of Seattle.  I hope you all have a fantastic day!

❤ Lindsay

  1. This mac & cheez post is speaking to me. 😉
    I am a mac and cheese fiend as well and have recently weaned myself from eating it pretty much every other day. I spy a recipe that may just have to take its place!

  2. I love your leopard-print rain boots! Super cute, and definitely a great way to brighten up a rainy day. 🙂

    Mac n’ cheese is my #1 comfort food, however I haven’t had it since going gluten free. I need to buy some GF pasta and get on it…and maybe I’ll be adventurous and go vegan with your boyfriend’s recipe! He’s a stud for cooking such a delicious meal for you!
