Super Creamy Macaroni Salad (Vegan, No Oil)

This is the creamiest vegan macaroni salad I have ever had. And, no mayo! The magic ingredient: silken tofu! This recipe is adapted from Minimalist Baker (go check her out!). Oh, p.s., this is INCREDIBLY EASY.


4 cups cooked/drained macaroni  (white or whole wheat, follow instructions on packet)
1 cup diced celery
1/2 red bell pepper diced
1/2 cup diced purple onion
1 12oz packet silken tofu (you must use silken or the recipe won't work!)
2-3 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3/4 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 to 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper (if desired)


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. In a large bowl, combine diced veggies and drained macaroni. Set aside.

2. Using a blender, blend the silken tofu, agave nectar, yellow mustard, rice vinegar, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and chili pepper (optional) together until smooth and well mixed.
3. Pour the sauce over the macaroni and diced veggies. Stir until the macaroni is well coated.
4. Enjoy right away OR refrigerate for a couple of hours for an even tastier salad (it tastes better if the macaroni has had a chance to sit in the sauce)!
5. Store your leftovers in the fridge, if you have any!
