Make Your Own Vegan Macaroni Cheese
To make your own vegan cauliflower cheese is pretty easy, as long as you have a basic knowledge of plant-based cuisine. You could of course go for just replacing the cheese sauce with commercial vegan cheese sauce, but it’s quite difficult to find in shops (and most vegan cheese sold in supermarkets is vile). Most recipes add nutritional yeast along with spices and mustard.

Chefs tend to use other ingredients like nutritional cheese (find it in health stores, it’s a B12 powder that gives a natural cheesy flavour) and then replace the ‘cream’ with ingredients like soaked cashews. There are also a few better vegan cheese sauces on the market, though you’ll have to buy them online.
