One of our favorite ways? Pumpkin Mac and Cheese!!

Today we're highlighting a recipe for this classic dish with a fall twist

  • 2 cups Brown Rice Macaroni (dry)

  • 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

  • 1 tbsp Arrowroot Powder

  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder

  • 1/3 cup Nutritional Yeast

  • 1 1/2 tsps Dijon Mustard

  • 1 cup Pureed Pumpkin

  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup

  • Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook brown rice macaroni as per the directions on the package. When finished cooking, strain and run under cold water immediately to prevent from overcooking.

  2. Meanwhile, heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the milk is steaming, whisk in the arrowroot until all clumps are gone.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until thoroughly combined. Turn down to low heat and cook until the sauce has thickened, about 5-6 minutes.

  4. Pour the pumpkin sauce over the macaroni and mix well. Divide into bowls and enjoy!

As always, let us know if you try this!
