Ingredients

  • 8 oz / 227g macaroni (can be either regular or gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, separated
  • 15 oz / 425g medium cauliflower (about 1 medium)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon white wine (optional)
  • 8 oz / 227g medium onion, sliced (about 1 medium)
  • 7 oz / 198g sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt (plus more for boiling the macaroni)
  • freshly grated pepper
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 can / 400ml Chef's Choice coconut milk
  • ½ cup shredded vegan cheese (or as much as you like!)

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • While the water is boiling, cut the cauliflower into 1-inch pieces. Sautée over medium heat with garlic, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and ½ teaspoon salt until cooked, about 7 minutes. Put in a blender and set aside to cool.
  • In the same pan, heat another tablespoon of olive oil and add the onion and mushrooms. Once they've caramelized, about 10 minutes, add the spinach and cook until wilted.
  • While the onions and mushrooms are cooking, add some salt to the boiling water and cook the macaroni according to package instructions.
  • To the blender with the cooled cauliflower and garlic, add 1 teaspoon salt, black pepper, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and a can of Chef's Choice coconut milk. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.
  • Add the cooked macaroni, sautéed vegetables, and sauce in a casserole dish. Top with shredded vegan cheese and put it under the broiler until the cheese melts and turns golden.
