Dairy-Free! I loved macaroni and cheese, and once I started eating a plant-based diet, I was afraid I would have to give up that delicious comfort dish forever!


1 cup Elbow macaroni dry, gluten free
1 small potato Sweet potato (chopped)
1/2 cup Almond milk, unsweetened
1/4 tsp Yellow mustard
3 tsp Lemon juice
1 tbsp Nutritional yeast
1 tsp Olive oil
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1 pinch Salt and pepper (to taste)



  1. Steam sweet potato for 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Follow directions on the box to cook pasta until it’s al dente. Then drain, cover, and set aside.
  3. Once the sweet potato is tender, add to blender with almond milk, lemon juice, mustard, nutritional yeast, olive oil, and garlic powder. Mix well.
  4. Add sweet potato mixture to pasta, heat over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until hot, and serve!

After step 3, you can fold in pasta and add mixture to a baking dish sprayed with virgin olive oil.

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until top begins to brown.

Put this on a nice plate instead of a colorful kids bowl, and you’ve got a sophisticated dinner!
