Mac n Cheez

Here is a creamy, delicious and nutritious version of the traditional comfort food Mac and Cheese. 

This cheez sauce is so versatile that you could use it on steamed or baked veggies or as a dip! 

It is also filled with B vitamins, Vitamin A and C, calcium and fiber!

Makes 3-4 cups

Ingredients

1.5-2 cups boiled or baked butternut squash, cut into cubes, then mashed

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil

1 bouillon cube (I used onion)

2 cloves garlic

2 tsp turmeric powder

1/8 – 1/4 tsp chili pepper

1 tbsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar

6 cups dried spiral or macaroni pasta of choice

Directions

  1.  In a powerful blender, add all ingredients except shredded cheese and pasta.  Blend very well until creamy and smooth.  Set aside.
