Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

High Carb VeganVegan


  • 1 batch Life-Changing Vegan Cheese Sauce
  • 1 cup textured vegetable protein (TVP)
  • 16 ounces gluten free pasta, cooked
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce, or tamari sauce
  • 1/2 of a 6-ounce can salt-free tomato paste
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk


  1. Make a batch of Vegan Cheese Sauce. While that’s making, boil water for the pasta and re-hydrate the TVP if you’re using it.
  2. Heat the oil on medium-low in a large nonstick saucepan. Add the chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and red pepper flakes and let them bloom for a minute or two. Add the textured vegetable protein and sauté for about 5 minutes.
  3. When the cheese sauce is done, stir it into the pan along with the liquid smoke, soy sauce, tomato paste, and almond milk. Turn the heat to low and let everything simmer until the pasta’s done. When it’s done and drained, fold it in.

I don't understand, if you dont eat Hamburg or Meat for this matter, why do you want to create something that tastes like it??? Or similar...

It\'s simple, Tina. Most vegans didn\'t give up meat because they hated the taste. They did it because they learned about the horrific lives and deaths that animals have to endure to end up on our plate. I LOVED the taste of meat. But when I was helping my daughter with a college paper, I had to help her by reading some info and watching some videos, and I was DISGUSTED and shocked. We both went vegetarian for 2 years, then vegan. SO if I can have a plant product with a meaty taste/texture, and with no suffering?? I\'m all in!
