Macaroni and Cheese

Who would have thought using a sweet potato base could make a delicious version of the traditional macaroni and cheese?


1 cup of cooked noodles (according to package instructions)
1/2 baked sweet potato
1/4 tsp mustard
Juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Dash of salt
Dash of freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp of nutritional yeast and 1/2 tbsp of olive oil for crust


In a medium-sized bowl combine the sweet potato half, juice of half a lemon, mustard, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, olive oil and salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Fold 1 cup of cooked noodles into the sweet potato “cheese”.
Place the mixture into a serving-size baking dish.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast over the dish and drizzle with 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. This will allow the top to crisp while cooking.
Bake in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes, or until the top begins to brown.
