Momzinga’sTaco Tuesday: Mayim Bialik’s Vegan Mac N’ Cheese Recipe


The Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik recently wrote, Mayim’s Vegan Table, filled with great info about becoming vegan enriching us with her incredible knowledge, including several awesomely healthy alternative recipes.

I looked at her book while I was hungry thinking of delicious sugary mixtures, instead coming away with a healthier alternative to the regular spin on Mac N’ Cheese. She should have won that Emmy!

Mayim Bialik’s Vegan Mac N’ Cheese:


1 16 ounce package pasta, such as farfalle, rigatoni, penne, or large macaroni
1 1/4 cups nondairy milk, (almond milk works best)
2 tablespoons all purpose flour or white or brown rice flour
1 8-ounce bag shredded vegan cheese, preferably mozzarella or cheddar
1/2 cup bread crumbs (optional)

1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain when al dente and place in a large bowl.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
3. Heat 1 cup of the nondairy milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
4. In a cup, whisk the flour into the remaining1/4 cup of milk until dissolved. Add it slowly to the heated milk, whisking as you go. Add the shredded vegan cheese aNd stir constantly until the cheese is dissolved and the sauce is bubbly, about 5 minutes. Pour over the pasta mixture and stir to combine.


By the way Mayim Bialik is a neuroscientist in real life, like the one she portrays on Big Bang Theory. She was the star of the hit 1990’s TV show, Blossom, has two kids, and recently became divorced.
