Vegan Mac and 'Cheese'

By Wednesday, June 18, 2014 , , , , , ,


Macaroni cheese is one of those comfort foods that everyone seems to grow up with and feel quite nostalgic about. Whether you're a fan of the microwave "Easy Mac" or if you love you Mum's homemade mac 'n' cheese, it's certainly a popular dish. So obviously, I had to try and make my own healthified version!

This sauce was a bit of an experiment, but I was actually very impressed with the results. It's creamy from the almond milk, the nutritional yeast makes it a bit cheesy tasting and the dijon mustard gives it a depth of flavour and a little kick of spice. It's the perfect comfort food, especially with some extra veggies thrown it, it's actually good for you too! I like mine with steamed broccoli and cauliflower, for a fun combination of cauliflower cheese and macaroni cheese.

Serves 2

You will need:

3 tbsps rice flour
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp coconut oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Add the flour to a saucepan and gradually add the almond milk, stirring continuously to avoid lumps. Once all the almond milk is added, mix all the other ingredients together in the saucepan over a low heat until thick and serve with your choice of pasta and veggies.

  1. Hey there, this recipe looks awesome but because I'm not dairy free and I'm finding it hard to find nutritional yeast could i substitute cheese in instead? Sorry if this seems like a silly question! :)

  3. In that case, why don't you just use a normal cheese sauce recipe? You don't have to try and modify a vegan recipe!

    I used sweet potato flour and following the recipe. (Except the yeast)
    But it become sticky and turn into solid immediately. I can't even spread it. It's sweet potato flour too sticky for this sauce? Or i should put yeast

    1. I don't think sweet potato flour is the right thing to use, try normal baking flour?
