Vegan Sweet Potato & Spinach Macaroni Cheese

I was getting inspired by the Pink Rose Bakery: Sweet potato & spinach pasta. The two main key ingredients just fits in my favourite list.

If you have been with me for a while, you’ll understand how I love them. That’s why this post is here for today!

Nothing much to say and can’t find the word to depict it, only keep digging in the dish and lick clean all the sauce.

Vegan Sweet Potato & Spinach Macaroni Cheese 

Ingredient:            Serve 2 to 3 

  • 1 medium size Sweet Potato
  • 100g Fresh Spinach, washed
  • 1 tsp Ground Paprika
  • 1 tsp Hot sauce     (I use tobasco sauce)
  • 1 tsp Tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp Ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp Miso paste
  • 1/2 cup Rice milk or Almond milk
  • 200g Dry Macaroni
  • Pink Sea salt and Black pepper for seasoning
  • Vegan nutritional yeast flakes for topping

Vegan Sweet Potato & Spinach Macaroni Cheese

Method:

  1. Wash the sweet potato and prick the skin with a fork, cook in the microwave until it soft, peel off the skin and mash it.
  2. Meanwhile, cook your pasta until al dente, reserving some of the starchy pasta water for the sauce.
  3. Add milk into a saucepan over medium low heat, add tomato paste, miso paste, bring it to boil, add the mashed sweet potato and combine into the sauce, add the paprika, hot sauce, turmeric and season with salt and pepper. Now you may adjust the sauce thinner if it is getting too thick by adding a bit of the starchy pasta water at a time to reach to your consistency.
  4. Add spinach and quick stir with the sauce, then add the main ingredient: cooked macaroni and toss all together, taste and adjust the seasonings, top with vegan nutritional yeast flakes, then serve.

Note: 

  • Feel free to swap the spinach with the kale or other veg that you like.
  • Use rice milk or nut milk make the sauce more creamy, if you think it is too much, just add water should be fine.

  1. Looks delicious Mochi, I love using nutritional yeast, it really tastes like cheese and makes really good mac and cheese, using the sweet potato gives nutritional value and color. This is a wonderful recipe.
