One of my major New Years’ resolutions was to go dairy free. This hasn’t been too hard but I definitely needed to find ways to make my favorite recipes. Mac and cheese has always been one of my favorite comfort foods and this vegan mac and cheese recipe is so good. With only 5 ingredients, this recipe is fast and vegan!
2 tbsp Vegan Butter
2 tbsp flour
Box of shells (or pasta shape of your choice)
1 cup unsweetened dairy free milk
8oz bag of plant based cheese
- Start by adding the butter to the pan to melt. Once melted add in the flour and continue to stir. It will get clumpy so slowly start adding in the milk to break up the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.
- Once smooth, add the plant based cheese. This will take a bit to melt completely but don’t give up until it’s smooth and creamy.
- Cook the pasta based on the instructions on the box and then drain the water.
- Add the pasta to the cheese sauce and mix!
I was not kidding when I said this recipe is so easy! I love to top vegan my mac and cheese with bread crumbs and some red pepper flakes for a kick. This recipe would also be good with some buffalo sauce in it.
One thing I’ve learned on my dairy free journey is that you don’t have to give up on your favorite recipes. Get creative and find ways to continue to make them with your own twist.
