Ready-made Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Again, not so much a recipe as product information for those of you exploring the new and wonderful world of vegan food! We offer three variants... 

 

1. Ready-mades. At time of writing, Sainsbury's Free From Macaroni Cheese Style, Waitrose, Tesco Wicked and Amy's Kitchen are each truly ready-made, a vegan ping meal - but they each need to be served with a big plate of greens and/or salad to make them a balanced, healthy meal! (We estimate that there will be more such vegan ping meals on the shelves soon!)
2. Free & Easy Sauce Mix is very quick - cook some pasta and make the cheesy sauce mix from a tub (very simple) + a couple of extra ingredients.
3. The third version - Vegusto Cheese Sauce - needs cooked pasta too - but the sauce is instant, it just needs heating up.

 

And of course, if you have a few more minutes, click here for this easy recipe - it's all made in a blender then heated up to thicken and mixed in with cooked hot pasta.
