Vegan Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Yields8 Servings

Another childhood favorite gets the vegan treatment. This time, it's the ultimate comfort food.

 16 oz Elbow macaroni (one package)
 ½ cup Vegan butter (such as Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
 6 tbsp All purpose flour
 ¼ tsp Salt
 ¼ tsp Dry mustard
 ¼ tsp Black pepper
 4 cups Unsweetened almond milk
 4 cups Shredded vegan cheddar (such as Violife)

Preheat your oven to 350˚F.


Cook your pasta for just a couple of minutes, so it is very al dente. It will finish cooking in the oven later! Drain and set aside.


Melt the vegan butter in a small saucepan then stir in the flour, mustard, salt, and pepper.


Gradually add in the almond milk and cook until mixture is smooth and bubbly, stirring constantly!

Cook over medium heat until mixture boils, continuing to stir constantly!

Switch the heat to low and simmer 1 minute, while you guessed it - stirring constantly.


Add the vegan cheese and stir until it is completely melted, resulting in a beautiful cheese sauce.


Add in your elbow macaroni and stir until it is coated in the cheese sauce.


Pour your cheesy macaroni into a 13x9 casserole (I like to use a clear Pyrex). Optionally, steal a few spoonfuls to eat while the rest bakes. I do this every time.


Top the dish with a layer of breadcrumbs and bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.
