GF Vegan mac and cheese

I think the kids would like this:

Gluten-Free Vegan Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

2 to 3 cups boiling water
1/2 cup soy margarine
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt (I used more because I’m a salt freak!)
1 to 2 teaspoons garlic powder
Dash of turmeric for color
1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
1 box of gluten-free brown rice pasta, cooked

Directions:

1. In a kettle or pot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. In a large frying pan, melt the margarine. Whisk in flour until it is all mixed together and bubbling. You can add more margarine if needed. Slowly add the boiling water and whisk in as you go, paying attention to the thickness. If you have ever made gravy, it should look about the same.

3. Whisk in the salt, garlic powder, and turmeric. Keep whisking in water until it has the consistency of a nacho cheese sauce. Note that I didn’t use all 3 cups of the water and just kept adding it until reaching the proper consistency.

4. Whisk in the nutritional yeast in small amounts. Let boil for about 2 minutes and then toss with pasta. Yummy!
