Protein Mac ‘n’ Cheeze

Recipe: Protein Mac ‘n’ Cheeze

Vegan, gluten free option, nut free

Serves: 2

Time: 20 min


  • 1 cup Macaroni (or gluten free pasta alternative)
  • 2 ½ cups soymilk or other unsweetened plant-based milk
  • 1 serve (25g) of Nuzest Just Natural Clean Lean Protein
  • 2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tbsp white miso paste
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp ground paprika
  • Salt and pepper



  1. Cook your pasta as per packet instructions.
  2. In a separate medium-sized pot, stir your soymilk over a low heat slowly whisking in the nutritional yeast, onion powder, dill, white miso paste, tamari, ground paprika, turmeric, salt and pepper.
  3. Once combined, slowly add the Nuzest Just Natural Clean Lean Protein, and whisk continuously to ensure the mixture doesn’t clump.
  4. Whisk over a low heat for a further 2 minutes until combined and smooth – do not let it boil!
  5. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and pour your pasta into the pot of cheeze sauce and mix until combined. Let the pasta sit over a low heat for a further 2 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken further.
  6. Serve with a grating of plant-based parmesan and some paprika, or fresh cracked pepper and chopped parsley.
