I’ve eaten plenty of vegan macaroni cheese in my time, I can tell you. It’s probably Matthew’s most requested meal – and even though he eats dairy products he is more than happy to eat a vegan version as long as it is creamy, rich and tasty. Until now, my favourite recipe was the VegNews version, albeit tweaked a touch to my tastes to include nutritional yeast, tahini and miso. However, I’ve found a new favourite. The mac ‘n’ cheesie casserole by Kittee Berns is included in Vegan Girl’s Guide to Life and is so delicious that it’s gone straight to the top of my list. It’s fabulously smoky and rich, and with a drizzle of truffle oil over the top, is a creamy, gorgeous bowl of comfort. Depending on the pasta you use, it’s even gluten free. I served it here with some greens which I steamed then flash fried in olive oil and a touch of smoked salt. Highly recommended.
Truffle oil is a splendid idea. As is the smoked salt. I have some smoked oilve oil tucked in the cupboard which would be fantastic too.
Thanks for posting this. I just watched the Baking Made Easy show on IPlayer and Lorraine was making Mac n Cheese and I was thinking I should find a good vegan recipe as it’s something I’ve never had veganized. I’ve got Melissa’s book so I’ll have to give Kittee’s recipe a go 🙂
Lovely blog you have. I like the theme.
I have to try that soon, it looks amazing!
I totally agree with you. That mac and cheese is so good!
aw, thanks! so glad you like it. your’s is the first review I’ve seen after Mihl’s tester. first kfisher of ’11!
Your post inspired me to try the cheesie recipe as I have a copy of a ‘Vegan Girls Guide to Life’ (Don’t ask) but used it on roasted cauliflower rather than macaroni
Agree with you that it is very good, tastes very rich, probably down to the nuts?
