4. Simple Vegan Mac And Cheese Recipe

Mac and Cheese is probably one of the most popular dinner time recipes. It’s gooey, cheesy and one bowl is just never enough. But, it’s heavy on the dairy with lots of cheese, milk and buter. Vegan cheese is not for everyone and it can be difficult to find the right texture and flavour for you. Thankfully, there are now lots of options to choose from that are available in most supermarkets. If you’re a fan of mushrooms, try Feed Me Vegan author Lucy Watson’s mushroomy mac ‘n’ cheese recipe. It’s creamy, cheesy, taste’s just like the real thing and the mushrooms add an extra texture which takes it to a whole other level.
