If you have never tried tofu, this is a great place to start. This recipe is a perfect replacement for an easy pasta instead of boxed mac and cheese. Kids love it and adults do too. It is full of protein from the tofu and antioxidants from the spices. If you don’t have unsweetened plain plant milk, you can sub with the cooking water.

1 (16 oz) package of noodles, preferably whole wheat
1 package firm tofu
2 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons vegetable bouillon paste or two bouillon cubes
2 heaping tablespoons raw cashews
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk or can use pasta cooking water
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon rosemary
½ teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon salt
fresh parsley for garnish, optional
vegetables of choice or add as a side dish: tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, optional
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package.
While pasta is cooking, in a high speed blender place all the other ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Drain pasta, and while pasta is draining, add sauce to the pan and cook until heated through. Then add cooked pasta and mix well.
Serve with your favorite vegetables.
Salt and pepper to taste.

*Don’t forget to preload on vegetables before you eat!
*Nut-Free: Use raw sunflower seeds or tahini instead of cashews
*FODMAP Swaps: Check for Low FODMAP ingredients to use instead of garlic at the beginning of the meal guide or omit as the vegetable bouillon will have some garlic and onion in it
