Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese
1/2 peeled and diced butternut squash
¼ cup almond milk
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil*
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
4 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp lemon juice
250 g pasta of your choice
Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
Steam the butternut squash for about 10 minutes or until it's soft. We place a steamer basket in a pot, add some water and when it's boiling we add the squash and cook it over medium-high heat. You can also boil or roast it.
Place the steamed squash in a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
Cook the pasta according to package. Cook the pasta while you're steaming the squash, that way you'll save some time.
Mix the pasta and the sauce in the pot.
Serve with some fresh parsley on top. Walah!
You can swap out oil for water if you prefer an oil-free recipe. Store it in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days or even freeze it. You can reheat this amazing dish, but add some milk because the sauce probably will be so thick.
