20 Sep Vegan Bajan “Macaroni” Pie
Bajan Macaroni Pie was a staple in my house growing up, but although it was delicious, it was also laden with fat. This simple version is of course vegan and made with daiya “cheese” and vegan veggie pasta. Check it out!
Vegan Bajan "Macaroni" Pie
- 1 box of your vegan veggie pasta
- 2 tbsp Earth Balance butter
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2 cups Daiya non-dairy cheddar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
Cook pasta based on package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, add butter into a separate sauce pan and heat on low.
When the margarine is melted, stir in the milk. Then add "cheese" and cook over low/medium heat for about 6-8 minutes, continuously stirring to prevent burning.
After a couple of minutes, you’ll notice it will thicken into a sauce. Continue to heat and stir until it’s a smooth and creamy sauce.
Drain the pasta and put back into the pot. Add the sauce to the pasta and mix until even. Add in remaining ingredients and stir. You can top with some diaya "cheese".
Bake for 20 mins at 350F
