1. A very simple recipe (my son likes) for mac and cheese is this:
*I personally find it a bit bland* (I’d love to give credit here, but do not know where we Googled this from)
3/4 c. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. salt (or not)
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. water
1 c. soy or other milk alternative
3 Tb. oil
1 lb. elbow macaroni
Mix all ingredients (except mac-cook seperately) and heat gently, stirring with a wisk till a bit thick.
Drain noodles, pour cheese sauce over.
