The VegNews Scandal & Their Mac and Cheese Recipe!

In honor of the latest scandal to hit the vegan tabloids, I made the VegNews Macaroni and Cheese recipe for dinner last night! For those of you not in the know yet you can check out this post on Quarry Girl and be sure to read the VegNews non-apology apology here!

My take: eh, I had known about the stock photography thing for awhile, coupled with some other issues I have with the company, and just not being all that interested in the content meant that I hadn’t bought the magazine in a really long time. I do occasionally check it out in the bookstore so that I can read Laura Beck’s (of Vegansaurus!) column, because that woman is straight hilarious and never fails to get me laughing out loud.

Now, let’s not allow all of this ¬†silly controversy ruin one of the best macaroni and cheese recipes available on the planet! You make it buy boiling some carrots, potatoes, and onions, and then blending it up with some cashews and other tasty ingredients. Then something magical happens that turns these ordinary and unlikely components into a thick, creamy sauce that is slightly tangy, and suprisingly “cheesy” in flavor. Bonus points, because it’s nutritional yeast free! Okay, I might slip a tablespoon or two of nooch in, but it really doesn’t need it! I make this recipe quite often, and it is truly one of my favorites.

Have a look:

Okay, I kid, I kid. Here’s the real photo:

Even if you have sworn off buying an issue of VegNews ever again you just have to make this recipe.

Has anyone else made it? What do you think?
