CREAMY MAC N' CHEESE

I love anything with cheese. Usually, I make a roux of oil and flour and then add the faux cheese. However, this time, I nixed the flour and oil. The avocado and sweet potato make this a super creamy, super rich texture without the added foods devoid of nutritional stuff. If you are hankering for some good old fashioned comfort food (but still vegan), you have come to the right house for dinner tonight!

Ingredients:
6 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 ½ cups plain coconut milk
1 cup sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. paprika
1 avocado, peeled
10 oz. macaroni pasta
8 oz. cheddar cheese substitute

Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain. Place sweet potato in a microwave safe dish and cover with water by 1”. Microwave for 6 minutes. Drain. In a blender, add all remaining ingredients and mix until well-blended. Spoon over pasta and stir until the pasta is evenly coated. Oh boy! This one had my kids screaming (in delight, of course)!
