Mac and Nut Cheese

Mac and Nut Cheese (originally called Mac Oh Geeze by Dreena Burton)

3 cups of rice noodles (Trader Joes penne is $1.99 for a bag)

I recommend soaking the nuts for about 1 hour first if you have time, its not part of the instructions, but I think it will help them blend easier

1/2 + 1/3 cup of raw cashews
1/2 cup raw brazil nuts
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 large garlic clove (add an extra one and some basil for more of an alfredo sauce)
2 tsp arrowroot powder (Whole Foods spice section)
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dry mustard (Whole Foods has Simply Organic brand for $1.99, Target carries this brand, but I'm not sure about the dry mustard)
1 cup filtered water
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (homemade is better, but Whole Foods has their own organic unsweetened now for $1.99)
3 tbsp organic expeller pressed coconut oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Put water on for noodles, and cook them
Put cooked noodles in casserole dish
Blend all of the sauce ingredients until creamy in VitaMix Blender
Pour sauce over noodles
Bake for 16-18 minutes (oven times may vary)

My sons, parents, mother-in-law, and myself all really liked this a lot. We've made it twice.
