Vegan Macaroni and Cheese for One

Mac & Cheese is just one of those dishes that everyone seems to love. It's creamy, tasty comfort food based around two beautiful things: pasta and cheese. However, it can be kind of heavy, and what's more it isn't vegan-friendly. So, with this recipe that I've crafted, all the vegans out there can hopefully once more enjoy the goodness of mac & cheese without any unusual substitutes and the rest of us can be a little bit kinder to our bodies.


100g dry pasta
1 tablespoon flavourless oil
1 tablespoon plain flour
75ml unsweetened almond milk
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon nutritious yeast flakes
salt & pepper to taste


1. cook pasta as per the bag's instructions
2. whilst the pasta is cooking, heat oil in a separate pot over medium heat and stir in flour until smooth
3. gradually add the almond milk in until well combined and silky
4. stir in the mustard and yeast flakes, then season heavily with pepper and salt.
5. once the pasta is ready (usually about 10 minutes), your cheesy sauce will be too.
6. combine and serve

serves 1
time: 15 minutes 

this is how your roux/sauce should look once you've added the milk. feel free to add more if you want a thinner sauce!

What I love about this recipe is it's so easily customized. You can change the type of oil or milk you use, you can add more mustard powder for a stronger taste, skip the yeast flakes if you can't find any, or use the whole thing as a base and dress it up with extra vegetables. You can even add turmeric in for a more yellow-coloured sauce. And what's not to love about healthier choices? It really does taste like it's made with dairy.

If you try this recipe, please let me know how it turns out for you!

Love, Anna
