Dairy-Free Mac and Cheese Ingredients

  • 5 medium Potatoes peeled and diced
  • 4 Small carrot peeled and diced
  • 1/2 Cup cashew nuts (use unsalted), raw and lightly toasted
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice or 2 teaspoons calamansi juice
  • 2 teaspoons Korean Brown Miso Paste
  • Salt
  • 250 Grams elbow macaroni cooked according to package directions
  • 2 medium heads broccoli cut into florets and blanched for 2 minutes


  • Bring to a boil potatoes, carrots, nuts, and enough water to cover. Turn heat to medium-low; simmer until vegetables are cooked, about 10 minutes. Reserve 1 cup broth. Drain vegetables; set aside.
  • Sauté onions and garlic in oil until slightly brown around the edges, stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Place cooked potatoes, carrots, cashews, garlic-onion mixture, lemon juice, miso, ¾ cup reserved broth, and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a blender. Process until smooth. If difficult to blend, add more broth by the tablespoon. Adjust lemon juice, miso, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Heat sauce in a pot until simmering. Toss in pasta. Transfer to a serving dish and top with broccoli.
