Going vegan means no more boxes with powdered pouches of cheese for easy macaroni and cheese. Or does it? Fortunately, there are a couple of vegan brands on the market these days. But if knowing every ingredient that goes into your system is your thing (applause to you), then this is the mac for you! It’s got a healthy dose of miso for gut health, and creamy vegan butter and nutritional yeast bring out the nostalgic cheesy flavors we crave in a mac and cheese.
Add your favorite mix-ins to spruce up this easy one-pot dish. I like to add the Quinoa Bacon Bits from the first Epic Vegan book. Consider adding vegan hot dogs or broccoli florets for a little boost to satiate as a meal. If you are into spicy food, this is the perfect bowl to drizzle with sriracha. Of course, a pesto mac never hurt anybody. Top it with Presto Pesto (page 50) and Instant Almond Cheese Crumble (page 33) for a deluxe mac.
