Paleo Newb and Turkey Day is coming up. I need to serve the traditional dishes, but paleo and vegan. Can u imagine what a disaster this could b e.? Looking for a mac and cheese recipe with cashew cheese and some kind of brocolli macaroni. Can you see this happening. I can. Need help for a vegan paleo macaroni pasto recipe... Pls help iuc.
I made a Paleo Mac n cheese! It's soooo good! http://thepaleomama.com/2012/06/17/paleo-mac-n-cheese/
If I were in this position, I'd make two separate versions: a vegan M&C with regular pasta and whatever the hell one uses for cheese in that situation; and a paleo (or at least primal, as I'd go ahead and use real cheese) version.
Then again, I'm assuming that you'll be feeding vegans and your paleo self, but no actual paleo vegans. If there are paleo vegans involved--well, you have my condolences. I'd just leave the country for Thanksgiving, in that case.
I don't think cashew cheese will give you as authentic a finished product as something like this sauce recipe will (use nut milk instead of soy obviously) The sweet potato adds the color and texture and nutritional yeast give a very nice cheese flavor. Baking it helps with the texture a lot as well (as opposed to just saucing the macaroni substitute as in her quick recipe version)
I would use rice pasta/noodles as well although both zucchini and cauliflower would work but not as well as the rice IMO. Depends on your crowd I think. If you are feeding SAD eaters then rice noodles for sure. If you are feeding vegans or other more health conscious people I'd use veggies in place of pasta/noodles.
Here's a recipe from The Spunky Coconut that meets your standards http://www.thespunkycoconut.com/2011/12/butternut-mac-n-cheese-dairy-free-vegan.html Can't say I've tried it because I have no need/desire to eat vegan meals, but it looks pretty good!
