Comfort food: Super tasty, creamy mac and cheese

Fancy something creamy, cheesy, carby and comforting? Here is where you should be. If you've recently going plant-based and you miss good old mac and cheese, here's the perfect vegan recipe!

Mac and cheese is still one of my favorite recipes, and with a few tweaks, it could be veganized! This is how to make number one comfort food using unsweetened almond mixed with blended cashew nuts, which provide fiber and heart-healthy fats and nutritional yeast for an extra hit of savory flavor and a plant-based source of vitamin B12. 

Servings 4-6

If you've recently going plant-based and you miss good old mac and cheese, here's the perfect vegan recipe!

1 Cook the macaroni for 1 minute less than stated on the packet instructions and drain it.

2 Meanwhile, put the almond milk and cashews into a medium saucepan, heat on medium-high and bring to the boil. Let it cool a bit and blend until smooth.

3 Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Fry the garlic then add the flour to the pan and whisk until it combines with the garlicky oil to make a paste. Cook for 1 minute and pour in a little of the nut milk mixture in at a time, Cook for a further 2 minutes, then grate the vegan cheese and add it to the pan with the nutritional yeast and mustard.

4 Add salt and pepper to taste, take the pan off the heat and add the drained pasta. 

5  Now, put the breadcrumbs, olive oil and a big pinch of salt and pepper into a bowl and stir to mix. Scatter the crumbs over the pasta.

6 Grill for 2–3 minutes until the topping is crispy

7 Enjoy!
