Dairy-free, “cheesy” goodness
One of the key ingredients that make this recipe both super creamy and dairy-free is Willa’s Unsweetened Original Oat Milk. Willa’s is an amazing substitute for dairy milk because of our unique whole oat approach. As the only oat milk to use the entire whole grain oat, Willa’s has an extra rich and creamy texture as well as being higher in protein and fiber and lower in sugar.
Made gluten-free with Lupii
For this recipe, we used Lupii pasta. Lupii makes delicious pasta out of lupini beans, adding extra protein and fiber to the plate. Lupini beans are also a great crop for sustainability, requiring less water and boosting soil health.
A truly plant-based dish - made with real veggies!
Potatoes and carrots are the base of this recipe’s cheesy sauce, and also happen to be nutrient powerhouses. Potatoes are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, fiber, and potassium. Carrots are packed with beta-carotene, vitamin K, and fiber. Incorporating these vegetables into the sauce boosts the meal's nutritional value.
Sneak in turmeric for that classic golden color
Turmeric adds that vibrant golden-yellow color to your mac ’n’ cheese to give it that familiar cheesy look. Aside from color, turmeric has a ton of great health benefits. See this Golden Oat Milk with Ginger recipe for another way to add turmeric to your diet.
Add in your favorite fixings
Customize your Vegan Mac n Cheese with additional ingredients like sautéed spinach, roasted red peppers, or diced tomatoes to enhance flavor and nutrition. This recipe offers space for creativity with veggies and caters to a wide range of dietary needs. It's free from common allergens like dairy, eggs, and nuts, making it an inclusive choice for those with food allergies!
