Earth Balance Vegan Cheddar Mac & Cheese

Dairy Free Mac n Cheese from Earth Balance
It makes me so happy when I find my favorite vegan junk foods on sale!!! It seems like people either love or hate the various kinds of vegan cheeses. Well, I am a huge fan of the Cheddar Mac & Cheese from Earth Balance.

I haven’t actually tried the white cheddar yet, but I bet it will be just as good (since their aged white cheddar popcorn is wonderful, I’ll post that soon).

I like this boxed mac n cheese firstly for it’s nostalgic value. When I was much younger, I loved a certain macaroni that came in a blue box (and Red Baron pizza!). Similarly, this one comes with a little packet of powdered cheese-type flavoring with an unusual orange hue. Just add it to the cooked pasta along with a couple tablespoons of margarine, and a few tablespoons of your favorite non-dairy milk.

Nice and creamy. I haven’t had the Blue Box mac n cheese for a very, very, very long time, so I dunno if this really tastes like it or not. But it’s close enough for me!

I’ve had this twice now, and both times I ended up eating the entire thing myself. I’m sure you could fancy it up a little if you wanted to. For example:

-Replace 1 Tbsp of the margarine with Magic Vegan Bacon Grease and add some bacon-flavored bits.

-Substitute pureed pumpkin or vegan yogurt for non-dairy milk to make it extra creamy.

-Place finished product in a greased baking dish. Top with vegan Parmesan and seasoned breadcrumbs, and brown under the broiler.

-Add other vegan cheeses, such as Daiya Gouda-style, or Mozzarella Teese.

-Sneak in a little nutritional yeast, season with black pepper.

How do you like your mac n cheez?
