Miso Mac


Yes, the macaroni is green. And here's why, the sauce is made from broccoli! In The Veggie Lover's Cookbook, there's a recipe called Miso Macaroni that uses cooked broccoli and onions as a base for a sauce in which you add white miso, nutritional yeast, vegan margarine and tamari. I made a quick version by steaming broccoli, onions and sliced carrots in the microwave, threw them in the blender along with the other ingredients and blitzed away until smooth. Then heated up the sauce, added crushed chili flakes and tossed in cooked macaroni. Dinner took about 15-20 minutes.

Wow Kim that looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I wish I could make this but unfortunately my boyfriend has a very severe sensitivity to MSG and any product with glutamic acid (which is in practically ANYTHING packaged)...think I could make this with cashew and lemon juice?

Catastic,
Cashews and lemon juice would work great I would think. It would be nice and creamy.
