Just because your eating alkaline doesn't mean you have to miss out on any of the flavor that comes from the usual vegan dishes you prepare. My husband created this cheese sauce for the mac and cheese recipe and let me just say OMG it is sooooo delicious. I had to get on him to give me the recipe but here it is!!!
1 lb of quinoa, chickpea, or spelt pasta
1 cup of roasted butternut squash
1 cup of walnuts
1/4 cup of brazil nuts
1/2 of a red onion
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
approx. 2 cups of spring water
approx. 1/3 cup of hemp milk
1. Boil pasta and set to the side.
2. In a high speed blender add squash, nuts, onion, water, milk, and all seasonings. Blend until you reach a creamy queso sauce consistency. This may take a while.
3. Drain pasta and mix sauce together with pasta. At this point adjust seasoning to your liking and if you need it creamier add more hemp milk.
4. You can server it like this or bake it in a nonstick dish for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees and top with red chili flakes!
This dish is perfect for anyone transitioning to a vegan or alkaline lifestyle. The nuts make it super creamy and the combination of spices gives it that savory flavor we all love in mac and cheese. Give this dish a try and let me know how you like it!
