I have not had this stuff in years but nonetheless I needed an easy way to recreate something similar and as comforting as the blue box stuff. I found a recipe which appeared simple enough to make, even doable when feeling lousy.

Cheesy Mac n Yeast [Vegan]


  • 1 lb elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1//3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 3 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar


  1. Cook the pasta in according to package directions. Drain well and return to the pot.
  2. While pasta is cooking, in a medium saucepan heat the vegan butter until melted. Add the all purpose flour and whisk.  Allow to cook, whisking frequently, for a few minutes until a roux is formed.
  3. Add the non dairy milk, nutritional yeast, salt, tomato paste and garlic powder and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and simmer for a few minutes until sauce is nicely thickened to the consistency of cheese sauce.  add the lemon juice and agave nectar and stir.
