Easy Macaroni and Cheese

Easy Mac

Finally a homemade recipe that captures the texture and flavor of Daiya’s prepared mac and cheese mix, but with ingredients I feel good about! As much as I love Daiya, my son sometimes finds it too sticky or cloying; he gobbled up every bite of this version. Sprinkle with smoked paprika before serving for kids who like a little extra flavor.


  • 1 and 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 and 1/4 cups hemp milk
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons white miso
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to low and cook until thickened, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the cheesy sauce to the cooked pasta, and cook over low heat a few minutes to warm through.
