You would never know this cheesy mac is loaded with veggies and plant-based protein! Even kids will love the creamy sauce made from butternut squash. Feel free to leave out the cashews or the nutritional yeast, but not both or else it won’t taste right.

  • 1 1/2 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews

  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tsp. salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp. yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. white (or black) pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg

  2. Strain and add to a blender along with vegetable broth, nutritional yeast, and spices.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Cook macaroni according to package directions and toss with butternut sauce.
