I was in the mood for fatty food this weekend. Veggie dogs with tons of toppings are one of my favorite not-so-healthy, but delicious meals. There are few things that pair better than hot dogs + mac and cheese. I found this vegan version on Pinterest and made a few tweaks to it.
- 1- 15 oz. Can of White Beans (either Northern or Cannelini will work)
- 1 C. Non-Dairy Milk (I used unsweetened soymilk)
- ¼ C. Pine Nuts (I used cashews)
- ¼ C. Nutritional Yeast
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 2 tsp. Coconut Vinegar (I used 1 tsp. of apple cider vinegar)
- 1 tsp. Tomato Paste
- 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
- 1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
- 1-1½ tsp. Sea Salt
This sauce was great! I also added in paprika, fresh cracked pepper, garlic powder and mustard powder for an extra kick. When I make this again, I will probably omit the tomato paste, it was a little too sweet for my taste, since I like my mac and cheese sauce to be more sharp.
