Vegan Mac’ & Cheese

Burnished, golden topped Mac & Cheese is a real crowd pleaser. On the table in an hour, this recipe follows the classic bechamel style sauce method being rich and creamy, yet is 100% plant based thanks to our Crematta™. You can get creative with the addition of your favourite greens, just blanche and plunge into water to chill before draining, chopping or blitzing and adding to the creamy, cheesy sauce.

Forkin’ Easy


2x JULIENNE BRUNO Superstraccia®
100g Broccoli
40g Cavolo nero
50g All purpose flour
500ml Water
1 tsp Sea salt
½ tsp Black pepper
1 tsp Mustard powder
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp White miso
1 tsp Soy sauce
250g Macaroni
100g Frozen peas
¼ Lemon Zest & juice
2 tbsp Tapioca starch


  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, blanch the Broccoli and Cavolo Nero for 2 minutes then plunge into a large bowl of cold water. Drain then coarsely chop before setting aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200c. Spoon out the tub of Crematta™ into a medium/ large sized pan, set over a medium heat until it begins to melt. Gently whisk until the Crematta™ is entirely melted and begins to bubble. Add the flour, constantly whisking to combine until the flour cooks off and the roux style base is smooth and glossy. Pour the 500 ml of water into the pan whilst whisking continuously. Turn down the
    heat, add half a tub of the Superstraccia® and cook for 5 minutes allowing the sauce to thicken, whisking occasionally.
  3. Add all of the seasonings then whisk vigorously to combine, remove from the heat before stirring through the chopped greens, peas, lemon juice, lemon zest and macaroni.
  4. Spoon the macaroni mixture into your oven dish or skillet. Mix together remaining Superstraccia® with the tapioca starch before evenly topping the dish, ensuring it is spread completely to the edges.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes until bubbling, and the top is golden. Finish under the grill on high heat for 5 minutes until the top is beautifully browned and beginning to char. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
