When it comes to this vegan nutritional yeast pasta recipe, it's easy and quick, it's vegetarian and vegan, and it's tasty, but it's sure not fancy. If you're craving mac and cheese, while this is not quite the real thing, this is the quick and easy vegan way to satisfy that craving. This recipe is a simple dish of pasta in a white sauce or a roux, made with soy milk, flour, and oil, and with plenty of cheesy flavor from the nutritional yeast.
Add in a bit of garlic powder, onion powder, or extra salt if you taste this nutritional yeast pasta recipe and think a little something is still missing. Or, spruce it up with some frozen peas, fresh broccoli, a handful of spinach, or chopped tomatoes. If you're not worried about fat, add in about a tablespoon of vegan margarine or vegan cream cheese for a thicker and creamier sauce.
Gather the ingredients.
First, cook your pasta according to the package instructions. Prepare the sauce while your pasta is cooking.
Heat the oil over low heat then stir in flour to make a paste.
Slowly add in the soy milk and heat, stirring frequently, until almost thickened.
