Basically when you are going Vegan AND Gluten-Free, you would expect to be giving up anything close to Mac and cheese. Most people have a hard time thinking about giving up cheese. I thought I would but honestly.. you get over it. This dish will fulfil any cheese craving and it's actually healthy.. and VEGAN!
Here are some ingredients I used!
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 3 to 5 slices of Daiya cheese
- 1/3 cup of Nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp Earth Balance Buttery Spread
- Gluten free Croutons or bread crumbs
- optional* Daiya Cream Cheese (I used a bit of the herb and garlic one)
You can either just mix in the noodles when they are done to the sauce OR if you want a casserole like dish with crispy bread crumbs, then you can place the noodles in a dish and mix the sauce in there!
If you choose to do a casserole dish, you can turn your oven on broil and add the bread crumbs to the top of the dish.
You only need to let this broil for a few minutes to brown the tops since the rest is already cooked! YUMMM.
I've served this now to several non-vegans and they all LOVED IT! Kids will too! WAY healthier than a box of KD. It's still super quick too!!
Choose your spices.. I used:- Pinch of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
- sprinkle of ground pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- sprinkle of Garlic
- sprinkle of Basil
Also, if you want to add veggies, steam them while you are making the rest and stir them in before adding the bread crumbs! I used broccoli and it was delicious!
