Recipes, Salty

Mac and Cream

Day 5 of Quarantine: the sun has left us, it’s getting cold again, and I was craving something warm and comforting.

I used to make this one real quick with orzo, but this time, since I have time, I upgraded it a little.

Let me know if you try it, tweak it, hate it or love it in the comments below!

🍁 Ingredients (4 servings) 🍁

  • 1 cup of Vegan Macaroni 
  • 500 ml. soya cooking cream
  • medium carrots
  • 1 cup of shredded and cut cabbage
  • 1 or 2 large onions – depends on your usual taste 
  • 1 cube  vegetable stock (try to pick a brown one rather than yellow)
  • 3 tbsps vegetable oil 
  • 1/4 tsp of each: grounded allspice, grounded cinnamon, garlic granules, grounded nutmeg.
  • Salt to taste

🌱 Preparation 🌱

  1. Dice and fry onions on very very low heat with 2 tbsps of vegetable oil (feel free to add if you feel like they might burn), until completely softened. This will take time. Mix from time to time.
  2. Add grounded allspice, grounded cinnamon, and garlic granules to onions, mix well.
  3. While the onions fry, dice carrots, and place carrots and cabbage in some water in a pot on high heat.
  4. Let boil/simmer until both are completely soft and cooked. Strain water.
  5. On the side, melt vegetable stock in 2 cups of boiling water.
  6. Once all vegetables/onions are cooked, combine all in a pot. Add Vegetable stock and an extra 1/2 cup of water.
  7. Add the macaroni, bring to high heat, and add half the soy cooking cream.
  8. You want the mixture to be very hot, but not boil. To do this, let it boil, then decrease heat.
  9. Keep mixing from time to time and checking on the macaroni.
  10. Add the other half of soy cream halfway.
  11. Add salt and any other spices to taste.

👩‍🍳How to serve 👩‍🍳

  • Once the Macaroni is soft, take off the heat and serve while warm. Sprinkle some Nutritional Yeast on top for a cheesy flavor !
  • Option to add some warm water and mix if the macaroni absorbed the moisture.
  • Option to add mushrooms to the whole mix.

Stay safe, stay home, and let’s survive this, one recipe at a time!
