This Creamy Vegan Mac and Cheese recipe is a bit of a non-traditional take on one of my favorite holiday dishes, but it still delivers plenty of comfort. The sauce in this recipe marries a smokiness to a cheesiness that you will dream about for years to come. Bring joy to your family with this vegan option.
Add all of the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until completely smooth (if you have a smaller blender you might need to do it in 2 stages.).
Fill a large pan with water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook the macaroni as directed on the packaging.
Pour the cheese sauce from the blender into a pan and warm it throughout over a medium heat, stirring constantly until it is hot, glossy and the texture of a cheese sauce (it should only take about 5 minutes).
Finish with the butter if you are using it, as it adds a richness and extra glossiness. Just stir it in, then remove from the heat.
Drain the pasta, return to the pan and stir through the sauce.
Quickly wash out and dry your blender. Break the bread into pieces and place in the blender with the butter or olive oil. Blend until it crumbs.
Spoon the saucy macaroni into an oven proof dish, then sprinkle the crumbs evenly.
Place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it is piping hot and the crumb topping is crispy and a golden brown.
The dish is best if served immediately...enjoy!
