Happy Herbivore Vegan Mac N’ Cheese

March 1, 2010 by Keri

Tonight I was feeling like making a vegan pasta recipe from one of my favorite blogs, so I went browsing.  When I came across Happy Herbivore’s Soy-Free Vegan Mac N’ Cheese recipe, I was sold.  I’ve only made vegan baked-style macaroni and cheese, never one with a cheese sauce, so I was excited to give it a shot. I doubled the recipe, but made it exactly to Happy Herbivore’s directions except with one change mistake.

It turns out that I have a red miso paste in a yellow tub and a yellow miso paste in a red tub (I’m pretty sure the company did it on purpose just to mess with me!).  So as you can imagine from my mini packaging complaint session, I grabbed the red miso instead of the yellow.  Despite the switch, this macaroni and cheese turned out smooth, creamy, and absolutely delicious!  I added in the cauliflower I had been steaming as a side dish so that it would be covered in the “cheesy” goodness as well and the whole family loved it!  Yum!

  1. I can’t believe it didn;t come out red-ish from the miso mix up! I’m so glad you like it and now I’m wanting some!

    It says “Organic Mellow Red Miso Paste”, but it’s actually a dark yellow in color? Odd, but I’m glad it didn’t turn out red. That might have been… odd. I don’t blame you for wanting some; it’s delicious! Thanks for being an awesome recipe maker!
