Easy, creamy and rich vegan tahini mac and cheese. The best vegan substitute to classic mac and cheese!



To make enough for for 1 (12 oz) box of pasta:

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup plain, unsweetened dairy free milk, more to thin as needed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • Juice of 12 lemons (start with 1, add more to taste)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Salt + pepper to taste


  1. If you are serving with pasta, cook the pasta according the the box. 
  2. Blend all ingredients until well combined. If sauce is thicker than desired, slowly add in more milk of choice to thin.
  3. Adjust seasonings and serve with desired veggies and/or protein. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in and airtight container. Reheat leftovers gently on the stove with a splash of vegetable broth!


This recipe makes enough sauce for 1 box of pasta, but the recipe can easily be cut in half!
