Recipe Directions

  • 1. Throw all ingredients in a high-speed blender.
  • 2. Blend. This recipe can be a bit of a @#$#$% when blending, so if you're having trouble getting the mixture to mix properly, turn your high-speed blender off and insert a spatula down one side to let a pocket of air down near the blades. Then remove the spatula, put the lid back on and continue blending--going from slow all the way up to fast again. You can also add a bit more water (mentioned above) but I try not to add any more water than three additional tablespoons because I like to keep the texture nice and thick.
  • 3. Serve with noodles . For noodles, you all know that I am obsessed with kelp noodles, so that's what I use for my raw macaroni and cheese extravaganzas. But if you're cheap and/or disorganized and don't have raw kelp noodles, you can make zucchini noodles using a carrot peeler or a spiralizer.
  • 4. Garnish with lots of pepper! Normally, I don't really like pepper, but this recipe just totally gets better when you sprinkle a lot of pepper on it. Don't ask me why. It just does. Oh! And you could also even serve with raw ketchup :)
  • Enjoy this raw macaroni and cheese recipe! I don't have children, but something tells me they would just love this raw recipe as a treat on a cold, wintry day.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw macaroni and cheese... This recipe was born out of me saying to myself, "I need some raw macaroni and cheese right now or I am going to scream!" So I busted out my Vitamix and a sac of cashews and got to work creating this simple but ooeeey, gooey cheesey recipe.

Beware: this raw macaroni and cheese sauce is very potent! Start with a tiny bit of sauce and mix it into your noodles and then add more as your tastebuds dictate. If you add too much this raw mac and cheese recipe can be overpowering and way too saucy. So start slow with the sauce!

OK, and due to my noodles it's not really a raw macaroni and cheese recipe, it's more like spaghetti and cheese, but the taste is what's important, right??!

Hi,
Would it be ok to freeze this? And how long would you say this would hold in the fridge?
Thank you

Hi Colleen, kelp noodles are "noodles" made from an edible brown seaweed (called kelp). Not all kelp noodles are raw, so make sure you read the label.

Miranda's Review

Raw macaroni and cheese recipe
3
3 out of 5

I was planning on pouring the cheese sauce on broccoli instead. My cheese didn't come out as yellow-orange-like as the one in the picture. In fact mine just looks like a peanut butter smoothie. And it isn't that "cheesy" tasting. I thought it was going to taste better after reading the reviews. It isn't that potent either. I'm pretty bummed about the turnout but I will try again another time. Maybe it is because I used a different brand of nutritional yeast? (Sorry for the sideways picture)

Lol re: peanut butter smoothie. Next time you might want to add more nutritional yeast.

Made this for me. My husband tasted it and said he was sorry he ate what he had for dinner, and this is a meat freak.

This was very yummy, but I just have to say that mine looks very different from the picture of yours in color. Mine was very similar to the color of Mac and cheese... More yellow. I followed the recipe to a T, but was just wondering.

OMG! Made this sauce and put it over raw mung bean pasta. Super yummy. Non raw hubbie said it was the best raw dish he's ever eaten (and I make him eat quite a few)! Thank you!

Yes, your hunch was bang on. Children DO love this cheezy cheese. My son ate lots of it on his kelp noodles, macrawoni and cheeze and kale chips. In fact, I'll be making a batch tomorrow!!

I will have to try this with a few sprinkles of mustard seed. I've done it with the liquid mustard you buy at the store, and it was like cheddar cheese.
