Ingredients

  • 8 oz. gluten-free elbow macaroni (I recommend Modern Table or Bionaturae)
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into large pieces
  • 1 tbsp scallion, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp vegan mayonnaise, divided (I recommend Earth Balance or Follow Your Heart)
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Start by boiling water and cooking gluten-free pasta according to package directions (times range depending on brand). When the pasta is done, drain and rinse with cold water in a colander. Stir the pasta so that the additional water drains as well. Allow to stand about 1-2 minutes.
  • While the pasta is cooking, finely chop carrot and scallion pieces in a food processor using the pulse setting. You can also use a food chopper. 
  • Add pasta to a large mixing bowl. Stir in carrot and scallion mixture, followed by 1/2 cup mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for 1 hour. 
  • When you are ready to serve, mix in additional 2 tablespoons mayo and garnish as desired.
