Vegan Mac & Cheese Recipe

 4 oz Banza Chickpea Pasta
  cup Milk of Choice (I use Silk Protein)
 2 tbsp (10g) Nutritional Yeast
 4 tbsp (60g) Flavored Hummus of choice (preferred options in notes below)
 5 g Sriracha (Optional but recommended)
 ½ tsp Garlic Powder
 Salt & Pepper to Taste

Bring water to boil in a small saucepan and add your chickpea pasta. Cook based on the instructions on the package, as different shapes sometimes require different cook times.


In a separate saucepan, whisk together your hummus, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and sriracha.


While whisking, slowly add in your milk to thin it out. You can add more or less milk depending on how thick you’d like your “cheese” sauce to be. Add a few dashes of salt & pepper to taste.


Put your sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally. You only need the sauce to heat up and thicken slightly, but it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.


When your pasta is done, drain and rinse (chickpea pasta tends to leave residue) and then add directly to your sauce.


Mix everything together, transfer to a bowl, and enjoy!
