This One Pot Chili Mac and Cheese is entirely vegan, gluten free and ready on the table in 20 minutes. A fantastic meal prep and family lunch or dinner.


  • 3 cups dried elbow macaroni (12 oz) (I used gf)
  • 5 cups enchilada sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup cashew milk
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • salt, pepper to taste
Optional add ons:
  • 4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup bell pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 cup onions
  • 1 cup kidney or black beans, drained


  1. You will need a pot large enough so that you can cook all the ingredients in it. A smaller one won’t work in this case
  2. In this large pot heat a bit of oil or vegetable broth for oil free cooking. Add minced garlic and the optional onions and bell pepper. Fry everything for around 2 minutes.
  3. Now add 3 cups uncooked macaroni pasta, followed by enchilada sauce, vegetable broth, and nutritional yeast. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Also now is the time to add the optional seasonings like Italian seasoning, chili powder, or cumin. Mix well and cook everything for 10 minutes.
  5. Last add the optional black or kidney beans and finish with the cashew milk. Cook for 5 minutes longer.
