  • 9x13 casserole dish


  • 2 cups macaroni noodles, uncooked (Use gluten free if needed)
  • 1 15oz can butter beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 cup dairy free milk (we like oat for this)

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup vegan parmesan cheese (we use Violife for this recipe)
  • 1 cup vegan shredded cheddar cheese


  • Bring a salted pot of water to a boil.
  • Cook macaroni noodles according to the package. Drain noodles once done and set aside.
  • While noodles cook, add all remaining ingredients to a high powdered blender.
  • Blend this until very well combined (about 3-4 minutes). Set aside.
  • When noodles are drain, drain then thoroughly and return to pot.
  • Pour sauce in and stir well to combine. Cook just until heated through.
