This past weekend, I was lounging around watching a Tivoed episode of one of my fave cooking shows, Aarti Party. Bubbly food blogger Aarti Sequeira, who won last seasons Food Network Star whips up inviting Indian fusion cuisine. She is so adorbs! She prepared a Thai Red Curry Mac & Cheese, a twist on the classic comfort food dish and it looked divine. So I made some tweaks to veganize this hearty entrÃ©e.

The curry doesnt overwhelm your palate, rather it imbues a wonderful array of zesty flavors. With a creamy sauce, warm spices and crisp crumb topping, each bite will surprise and delight your taste buds.

Lets chase down all this good news with a nourishing bowl of comfort food: Mac and cheese. But vegan culinary wizard Chef Chloe Coscarelli being the star that she is, has jazzed things up to make a classic colder weather comfort dish even better. Her secret? Canned pumpkin and curry paste, as the celebrity plant-based chef revealed in a recent Instagram post.
These days, when half our days seem to be dominated by reading up on the ever-evolving coronavirus situation, post-election news, and going stir-crazy from the whole not seeing our friends thing, picking up a jar of red curry paste is a decision we strongly back. With that reclaimed 30 minutes of your life, go ahead and treat yourself some morewe hear that leftover pumpkin purÃ©e fares pretty well in these Vegan Pumpkin Almond Butter Brownies.
I always have sweet potatoes on hand anyhow, so I thought one day, why not use them to make a cheese sauce I had seen other people make it with potatoes and carrots and I have tried that and it wasn't my favorite but the sweet potatoes are perfect! I didn't want a completely fat free sauce because I still wanted the rich mouthfeel of actual cheese for my mac and cheese, so I added in some raw cashew butter. That combo was a winner!Â Of course I add in other seasonings as well, some of which may sound odd like the vinegar, miso and nutritional yeast, but just trust me on this one, it is delicious!Â I made this batch with plenty of Thai red curry paste, and a bit of cayenne for a little kick, plus some green onions and red bell pepper for color. The sauce was super delicious, like cheese but it didn't leave me feeling heavy or yucky after eating it. Probably because I was getting a serving of veggies instead of just cheese like in non vegan mac and cheese.
For the pasta I actually used a gluten free elbow pasta made from quinoa and brown rice. It actually tastes just like traditional pasta too! If you are looking for a healthier mac and cheese packed with flavor, give this one a try! It is actually really quick and easy to make too so perfect for a weeknight when you are in need of some comfort food!
To cook the sweet potatoes, I like to roast them in the oven. Â Take a large sweet potato, poke a few holes in it, and cut in half lengthwise. Â Place cut side down on a sheet pan lined with parchment and bake for about an hour at 400F degrees or until tender. Â Remove from oven and let cool before mashing.
A lot to unpack here despite the title of this recipe there is demonstrably neither macaroni nor cheese involved, and as for the wayward cross-cultural Thai-Italian fusion, perhaps the less said the better. But this is a food blog, so unfortunately for us all, I legally have to say more.
This is a recipe Ive been thinking about for a long, long time based simply on some stove-side musing, while using Thai yellow curry paste in its intended form. It occurred to me, while tasting the curry sauce I was stirring and simultaneously stealing small spoonfuls of the curry paste from the jar to eat that its savoury, salty fulsomeness might be surprisingly wonderful and slightly cheese sauce-adjacent draped over pasta.
I figured this concept might also require what we in the business call a soft-launch by which I mean, I made it just for me and my brother on a night when my parents were out. It was all I had hoped for and more: the pasta and creamy roux provided a smooth tranquil background to the mellow heat and heady mix of spices in the curry paste, somehow corroborated by my brother quite bewitchingly cheese sauce-like and yet also its own unique creation. What Im trying to say is, this definitely tastes like yellow curry paste and pasta, and that is a very good thing, and yet it doesnt taste incongruous. Its so good, even though its main ingredients werent originally intended to be bedfellows just so good! Besides, 2022 has made strange bedfellows of us all, and this macncheese is precisely the sort of comforting and easy tuck you want at this destabilisingly intense and hyper-emotional time of year or indeed any time.
4: Add the soymilk, a little at a time, stirring it into the roux the entire time to prevent lumps it may help to switch to a whisk at this point and continue stirring constantly over a medium heat until the sauce is thick and, well, saucy. Add about a quarter cup of the pasta water to the sauce and continue stirring. Once it looks thick enough to coat, pleasingly, the pasta, remove it from the heat. If it gets too thick, however, just stir in some more milk or pasta cooking water. Stir in the nutmeg, and then taste to see if it needs any more seasoning you may, quite justifiably, wish to add more curry paste, which I encourage you to do.
LA WEED, by Allison Stone from her latest album of the same name. A long-awaited new release from Stone brings the year to a close in a slightly more bearable way I love the title track and just everything from this album, it sort of sounds like Elastica if they were slowed down and then sped up again but only en smule?
Supervixens, by AR Kane, I know I talked about this song last week but the truth is I just have not stopped listening to it! And nor should you! Can you honestly tell me that whatever else youre doing right now is more important than this?
Ginger Garlic Red curry paste = incredible flavor base. Theres no way this isnt going to be good, you know? The only downside is that it might ruin all other basic mac and cheeses for you, henceforth. Im sorry if thats the case. It is for me, but its an evolution Im happy to ride. Because this stuff is next-level.
Nothing screams comfort food more than a nice warm bowl of mac and cheese. Growing up, I settled for boxed Kraft mac and cheese for random weekday dinners which was not high-quality at all yet I was a sucker for it. Now that I am vegan and cook for a living, I decided to step my standards up a notch with this bowl of red curry mac and cheese with broccoli. It is gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free while being packed with vitamins and nutrients. Who said comfort food can't be healthy
This is a 30-minute stovetop mac and cheese not a baked one. This means that the recipe is quick and simple, and will be ready to serve just as soon as the cheese melts into the red curry sauce and you get those noods coated. I prefer a stovetop mac and cheese, as I find baking tends to dry out the sauce too much when dealing in mac and cheese.
