  • 12 ounce box Elbow Pasta*
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups Silk Cashew Milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups vegan shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place macaroni, water and cashew milk in a saucepan together over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Be sure to stir frequently to keep the pasta from clumping together. Reduce heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes, until the noodles are tender and a thick consistency is achieved. If you need to, stir in additional water in 1/4 cup increments.
  • Add the vegan butter and garlic powder and stir until it's distributed throughout.
  • Add half of the vegan cheese and stir until it's melted. Add the remaining half, stirring until it's melted as well.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


* Use Gluten-free pasta to make this dish gluten-free
For extra saucey mac and cheese, add 1 - 2 tablespoons extra vegan butter, 2 - 3 tablespoon extra water, and 1/4 cup more cheese.
