Vegan Mac & Cheese
An American classic vegan style
This is my go-to dish for holidays, parties or Super Bowl. If there are no meatless options in the house of the person I'm visiting, at least I know I can stuff my face in this vegan twist on an American #tradish ;)
Inspired by AllRecipes
1 (8 ounce) box elbow macaroni
¼ cup butter alternative (we like Earth Balance)*
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
2 cups Oat Milk (we like Oatly)*
2 cups shredded Cashew Cheddar cheese (we like Daiya)*
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth, about 5 minutes. Slowly pour milk into butter-flour mixture while continuously stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbling, about 5 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese to milk mixture and stir until cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
Fold macaroni into cheese sauce until coated.
