Now this may be surprising to some of you, but I have never cooked with nutritional yeast before. I see it all over other blogs and have heard of the wonders of nutritional yeast, but this was the first time I gave it a try.
Here's what you will need:
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne
1 cup chopped cooked broccoli
1. Cook macaroni until al dente.
2. Meanwhile, combine tofu, soy milk, yeast, cornstarch, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric, cayenne in a blender until smooth.
3. Drain macaroni and return to pot with tofu mixture and cooked broccoli. Cook over medium heat until the sauce begins to thicken (few minutes). Add extra soy milk if too thick.
4. Serve hot.
Note: I sprinkled extra garlic and onion powder in the pot while it cooked at the end. You might need to play a bit with the spices to get it just right for your taste.
