Craving a savory, cheesy lunch or dinner? This Protein Mac N' Cheeze recipe is deliciously cheezy and decadent. Featuring Just Natural Clean Lean Protein, it's vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free. Make it for a weeknight protein-packed dinner dish or a great potluck dish to share with friends and family at your next gathering. Ditch traditional mac and cheese and try our plant-based mac and cheeze instead. You'll wonder why you didn't try it sooner!

  1. Cook the pasta as per package instructions.
  2. In a separate medium-sized pot, stir the soy milk over low heat, slowly whisking in the nutritional yeast, onion powder, dill, white miso paste, tamari, ground paprika, turmeric, salt, and pepper. 
  3. Once combined, slowly add the protein and whisk continuously to ensure the mixture doesn’t clump. 
  4. Whisk over low heat for 2 more minutes until combined and smooth. NOTE: do not let it boil! 
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and pour into the pot of cheeze sauce, then mix until combined. Allow the pasta to sit over low heat for another 2 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  6. Serving tips: add a grating of plant-based parmesan and some paprika, or fresh cracked pepper and chopped parsley.
