Macaroni and Trees

9-12oz macaroni pasta
2 tbsp dried parsley or 1/4 C chopped fresh
1 head of cauliflower, cut into large florets
1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes, large dice
1 C nutritional yeast
3/4 C milk or vegetable broth
1/4 C olive oil, or butter, or a combo of the two
1 clove garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp paprika
optional veggie add-ins: peas, steamed kale, or broccoli

In a pot fitted with a steamer, steam the cauliflower and sweet potato for 10-15 minutes, until easily pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, cook pasta accordingly. Drain water from cauliflower/potato pot and remove steamer. Add in all other ingredients except parsley and use an immersion blender to blend until completely smooth. If you don’t own an immersion blender, a blender or food processor will suffice. Stir in cooked pasta and parsley.
