Sweet Potato Mac & Cheese

A healthy kid friendly take on an american classic that kids are sure to love. Serves 6-9


  • 1 bag elbow pasta of choice
  • 2 cups cubed sweet potato
  • ½ cup cashews, soaked 1 hour
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ cup filtered water

Walnut Breadcrumbs

  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Pulse breadcrumb ingredients until finely ground.

Boil pasta. Drain, rinse, toss with small amount of olive oil to prevent sticking & set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Boil butternut squash until tender, about 20 minutes. In a food processor, combine all ingredients and puree until smooth and creamy. In a saucepan, sautee onion in olive oil until slightly soft, turn heat to low, and cook until tender and translucent.   Add to pasta, mix well and transfer to a lightly oiled 8 x 8 baking dish.

Top with walnut breadcrumbs and bake for 25 minutes.
