Vegan Mac & Cheese Recipe

Vegan mac and cheese is a delicious, hearty dish that is perfect for a winter meal. It is a great option for those who are vegan or lactose-intolerant, as it is made without dairy products. This dish is also a good choice for those who are looking for a healthier alternative to traditional mac and cheese, as it is made with healthy ingredients such as vegetables and beans.

Vegan Mac & Cheese

This is my go-to dish for holidays, parties or Super Bowl. If there are no meatless options in the house of the person I’m visiting, at least I know I can stuff my face in this vegan twist on an American #tradish 😉

Vegan Mac & Cheese

Quick, easy, and tasty macaroni and cheese dish. Fancy, designer mac and cheese often costs forty or fifty dollars to prepare when you have so many expensive cheeses, but they aren't always the best tasting. This simple recipe is cheap and tasty.

  • 8 ounce elbow macaroni 1 box
  • ¼ cup butter alternative (we like Earth Balance)*
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups Oat Milk (we like Oatly)*
  • 2 cups shredded Cashew Cheddar cheese (we like Daiya)*


  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth, about 5 minutes. Slowly pour milk into the butter-flour mixture while continuously stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbling, about 5 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese to milk mixture and stir until cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Fold the macaroni into cheese sauce until coated.
