New Farm Mac and Cheez


The original recipe for the New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook Mac and Cheez is the ultimate creamy vegan mac and cheez, not to mention flexible and dare I say, fatty.
I've made it at least 4 times now after it was posted on the ppk, and have always halved the recipe, cut some of the fat (margarine and oil), adjusted a spice or two, top with breadcrumbs or ground nuts for crunch and maybe add green beans or broccoli. I thought I'd share, because mac and cheese is one of my biggest vegan cravings....

Get Sconed's Adapted Version of the New Farm Macacorni and Cheez. (half recipe, feeds 4-6)

I've always wanted to make the full fat version of that dish, but something about using 1 stick of earth balance for dinner seems wrong, but oh so yummy. I'll have to try your version next time I have pasta around.

sarchan said...

This is awesome. I keep eye-ing this recipe, and waiting for a potluck to come around so I can justify making it, and not worry about gaining 10 lbs. in a week. I'm so happy to know that the fat can be so drastically cut back. I'll be trying your adaptation soon.

I just bought that cookbook and I'm sure I passed right over that high cal recipe. I love your version and it looks much healthier with some green in it.

Oops, I see I've missed some yummy posts! Thanks so much for this mac 'n cheese recipe, I've never made a good one. I'm going to try it.

Oh, and long live breakfast food!

Webly is only allowed to eat noodles at my house and she knows it! ahem.

Seriously, try this if you haven't! Best vegan mac and cheez yet..you know, besides my precious boxed 123s, yo.

michelle said...

oh so honored! when that crazy cook guy said it, you were like "yeah, whatever!"

i love new farm!

THANK YOU JESS! Another winner. I crave macaroni & cheez something fierce. You are such a gem to post this. It looks soooooo good, too. I'm def. gonna give it a whirl, nice with the lower fat as you adapted it. Shoyu! YES! Well done, Jess.

Taylor said...

Man, I wish all these vegan sites (like yours)and cookbooks were around when I was living and cooking with a vegan. We did something similar - make a yeast gravy for the mac, but I don't think it was as refined.

Kati said...

Hmmm this looks good although I remain skeptical. I don't really love nutritional yeast as anything more than a minor ingredient in recipes, but I may try this anyway. It just looks so creamy...must...give...in...to cheezy temptation...

erica said...

If you used whole wheat flour, that would totally F it up, huh? I'm just curious, 'cause if I do have white flour in my house it is no doubt rancid by now.

I'm always and forever dissapointed by vegan mac n' cheese (haven't tried the 123s yet), but thankfully I'm craving cheese less and less. I did just make some raw pumpkin seed "cheese" which I have yet to try ('cause of fasting), but omni boyfriend says he would eat it, which is a score in my book. I'm FINALLY 100% used to nooch, hooray! It only took 8 months. AND I made my own Parma the other day and it kicks ass. I feel bad to not support the company that makes it, but I can make it soo infinitely much cheaper (and cheat by keeping it in an old Parma bottle. Am I going to hell for that?)

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Erica -

I bought parma once or twice, but really, even supporting the company and liking the product (and cute label) - how can I just justify the price? Nope. Plus, I really like simple blanched almond - sea salt - nutritional yeast parmesan. I put mine in a little cheese shaker : )
I never thought I'd get to the point where I crave nutritional yeast, but there you have it again.

The pumpkin seed cheese sounds super intriguing! Where is the recipe from?

As for ww flour, I've used ww pastry in 'ellen's mac and cheez' I posted way back when a few times, but haven't used it in this one. I honestly don't see it hurting the recipe.

Johanna3 said...

great ! thanks for the recipe.

erica said...

Coolio. I'm going to try that mac n cheese out this weekend. The pumpkin seed "cheese" recipe was from Julian's "RAW: The Uncookbook". It's soo good, I'm having some for lunch on romaine lettuce folded like burritos.

The seed cheese is: soaked pumpkin seeds/parsley/salt or nama shoyu/jalapeno (I used hot pepper flakes)/lemon juice/garlic/ginger. Super yum, especially on my raw flax crackers. Dangit, I should just break down and blog this stuff, but I don't have lovely dishes to display it on.

Wiebke said...

mmmmmmmh, that looks so good! in two weeks i'll have my boxes unpacked in my new kitchen and plenty of room for cooking - this will be one of my first tries in a new oven. definitely with broccoli. love broccoli. and i have nutritional yeast cravings, too.

Urban Vegan said...

There are so many good vegan mac & cheese recipes out there. Cool to discover another one.

Melody said...

This looks amazing!

I have a question though.. did you really mean 1.5 cups COOKED pasta? or did you mean DRY pasta?

I can't see how 1.5 cups of cooked pasta would feed 4-6 people???

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

good point melody! I mean uncooked!!

Vivacious Vegan said...

This has got to be my favorite mac and cheez recipe ever. I am always afraid Im going to give myself a heart attack with the amount of fat it calls for but I'm so in love with the original fatty version I've never thought to halve it. I'll give your adaption a try next time. :)

I cannot describe how delicious this recipe is!!!

Thanks for sharing.

yeaaahtoast said...

Ok, that picture looks truly creamy, i am so on board with this one. And optional mustard??? I am so in love...

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Thank you anonymous! I'm glad you got to try it.

Yeahhhhhhhhhh - give it a go! let me know what you think. Personally, sometimes I can go for mustard, sometimes I don't want it near me.

Susan said...

I have had this marked to try for a while, and I finally did it tonight. I couldn't find the turmeric, I used whole wheat pastry flour, and I forgot to add tahini or mustard, but it was still delicious! I did put on the bread crumbs, which I don't think I will do again, but overall, so yummy! And easy! Thanks for sharing.

Katharine said...

Shoyu or soy sauce...how about "Bragg's Liquid Aminos". Is that the same thing!?

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Hi Katharine! Braggs is fine. I personally prefer tamari these days, but you're just looking for a salty taste here, so braggs would work. Maybe add a little less than called for if you're worried about overdoing it, and then taste as you go.

katharine said...

Holy YUMZ!

I just made it with whole wheat ditali pasta (more fibre/protein) and it's GRAND. I am fighting not to eat a big portion before bed...can't wait to have it for lunch tomorrow!!!

Don't Get Mad Get Vegan! said...

I am honored, DGMGV!!

one tex veg said...

wow. i mean, wow. the new farm mac and cheez (i'm eating it as i write, day 2) is so creamy, delicious, and good, and pretty easy to make, too! you know, my folks always get that "poor you" look on their faces when they see me since i've gone vegan. i think they're expecting me to wither away and get picked up by a sudden gust of wind, but, man, they do not know how well i eat!

thank you so much for this recipe!!!!

Melisser; the Urban Housewife said...

I had a potluck today & a friend asked what to make, so I sent her this recipe. YUM YUM! Thanks so much for sharing a lower fat recipe. She added broccoli & a bit of "ground turkey" as well!

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

Thanks you guys!

Interesting addition with the faux turkey!

LizzyQ ~ Vegan Mother said...

mmmm...... i. want. some. now.

Zay said...

Tried it for our collective house's potluck last night. The original is a definite favorite, and I don't think anyone noticed that this was any different!! The visiting four-year-old "whose favorite vegetable is 'meat'" also loved it! Thanks for coming up with the lower-fat version!
