Easy Vegan Comfort Foods

All Recipes by Sarah Kuretzky 



  • 1 cup cooked white beans. I’ve tried both chickpeas and canaille beans. Vegan mac and cheese
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup cheese shreds, such as Daiya or Vegan Gourmet
  • Salt – I like 1/2 tsp
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp olive oil


Drain and rinse beans if they are canned. Blend together all ingredients except cheese, either in a blender or with a hand blender. Transfer to a pot, and add the cheese, if using. Heat on low, stirring occasionally, until desired serving temperature is reached and optional cheese is melted. If serving with pasta, stir in cooked pasta at this time. Add more milk of choice if a thinner sauce is desired.


So I got this Cheese Sauce Recipe off of Pinterest and then added my own flair. They were delicious.

This is the Ingredient list for the sauce. I added Trader Joe’s Vegan Refried Beans, sauteed veggies, and homemade Guacamole. It makes a lot so this will serve 4-6 people Vegan nachos


  • 2 cups potatoes (360 grams)
  • 1 cup carrots (135 grams)
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil (70 grams)
  • ½ cup water (125 milliliters)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • Dash of cayenne (optional)


  • Boil the potatoes and carrots for 20 minutes or until soft.
  • Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.



I’m a pizza purist. I like to fold a slice and I just want cheese and sauce with basil. This is Vegan cheese pizzathe easiest thing I make. It’s pretty much my vegan junk food. You literally follow the directions on the package and it comes out perfectly.

  • Frozen Pizza crust from Trader Joe’s
  • Vegan Gourmet shredded mozzarella (My favorite)
  • Tomato sauce
