From The Forks Over Knives Plan

Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce package dried whole grain macaroni
  • 1 large sweet potato (12 ounces), peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup unsweetened plant-based milk, such as almond, soy, coconut, or rice
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon grated whole nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large pot cook macaroni according to package directions; drain. Transfer macaroni to a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan cook sweet potato, covered, in enough boiling water to cover 8 to 10 minutes or until tender; drain.
  3. For sauce, in a blender or food processor combine sweet potato and onion. Cover and blend or process until smooth, adding enough of the milk to reach a creamy consistency. Add yeast, garlic, nutmeg, and rosemary. Cover and blend or process just until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour sauce over cooked macaroni; stir to coat. Transfer to a 2-qt. square baking dish. Bake 15 minutes or until top starts to brown.
