Vegan Mac & Cheeseburger – Low Fat & Soy Free

Vegan Mac & Cheeseburger - Low Fat & Soy Free - Rich Bitch Cooking BlogThe title says Mac & Cheese even though it’s really Shells & Cheese. It just doesn’t have the same ring to it. This recipe is a lovechild between my two favorite vegan recipes. Our Vegan Bean Burgers are crazy simple (can of beans & breadcrumbs). No cooking dried beans, no busting out the food processor, none of it. The Vegan Cheese Dip/sauce is the least processed vegan cheese on the plant (just veggies, water and spices). Throw in some burger buns and pasta and BAM! I didn’t show this in the video but I mixed in a couple TB of BBQ sauce in the left over pasta & cheese. DUDE, that’s gonna have to be a video unto itself. This will make a lifetime supply of cheese sauce, feel free to cut the recipe.

V – CHEESE: 3 med potatoes, 2 long carrots, water, salt, onion & garlic powder, 1 lime, pasta

V – BURGERS: can refried beans (or whole beans mashed up), 1/2- 2/3 cup breadcrumbs + 3 TB extra, 1-2 TB oil

  1. Boil or Steam 2 cups of peeled potatoes & 1 cup carrots
  2. Put cooked veggies in blender with 1/2 cup of water. Blend!
  3. Add 1-2 ts salt, 1/4 ts garlic powder. 1/4 ts onion powder & 1 TB citrus juice (I just used a whole lime)
  4. Add either 3 TB of oil OR water. Blend!
  5. Add 1/2 cup nutritional flakes. Blend! Add tiny amounts of water if it’s too thick to blend.
  6. Cook pasta


  1. Mash 1 can of refried beans with 1/2 cup (or more) breadcrumbs. Add more if it needs to be thickened. Thicker is better (more meatly, less doughy)!! Adding spices is optional.
  2. Form 4 patties and press them on to a plate that has 3 TB breadcrumbs.
  3. Once coated in breadcrumbs fry in a skillet with 1 TB oil. Feel free to add more oil as you flip the burgers. Flip once golden to make them crispy on both sides.
  4. Add pasta & cheese on top of a burger. ENJOY

    1. I was given a bunch of small bottles of high quality raw sesame seed oil so I made a bunch of recipes with that. Since I’ve used those up I just use whatever. I love cooking with coconut oil but for videos I have been using olive oil lately. Honestly, I’ll use whatever! 😀
