Ingredients

  • Pasta or macaroni of your choice

  • Angel Food cheesy sauce mix

  • Non-dairy milk of your choice

  • Breadcrumbs

  • Smoked Paprika

  • Make your own sauce

  • Knob of plant butter

  • 3 tbs plain flour

  • finely chopped garlic and onion to taste

  • 2-3 cups plant milk

  • 3 tbs nutrional yeast

  • 2 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp mustard (hot or dijon)

  • salt and pepper

  • handful grated vegan cheese

Directions

  • This can be made with Angel food cheesy sauce mix (available in some supermarkets or organic stores) and regular pasta shells.
  • Cook the pasta according to instructions. Cook the Angel Food sauce mix according to instructions. Mix together.
  • To make it extra tasty sprinkle smoked paprika and breadcrumbs over the top and bake for 5 mins (after already cooking on the stove top).
  • Serve as it is, or try with steamed greens or salad.
  • Ready made version
  • You can purchase a heat and eat vegan version of this comfort food fave, such as the Gluten Free Plantasy Foods Vegan Mac ‘n Cheez. Just add water, boil, mix and serve.
  • Make your own sauce
  • Why not experiment with making your own sauce? Start by making a roux with 3 tbs plain flour and plant butter in a pan – whisk it for about a minute (if you like garlic and onion, chop and saute in oil, then stir in the flour.
  • Remove from the heat and slowly add 2-3 cups of creamy plant milk ~ soy is good. Whisk all the time you are adding the milk. Return to the heat and stir continually until thickened.
  • Now the fun part, where you can add what you want! We suggest 3 tbs nutritional yeast (brings out a really cheesy flavour), 2 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp mustard (hot or dijon is good), plus salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add more milk if everything gets too thick. Add grated vegan cheese for extra cheesiness.
  • Tip your cooked pasta in, stir thoroughly and top with breadcrumbs and paprika then bake for 5 minutes.

Notes

  • panko breadcrumbs given an aweseome, crunchy texture ~ mix in some smoked paprika, salt and tsp olive oil and heap on top of your mac cheese before baking.
