Smoky Vegan Mac and Cheese – Why vegan when I’m not a vegan.

I love cheese! Who doesn’t, right? The only problem there is, it’s not vegan. Im not a vegan, but I try to eat vegan 3-4 days a week . Why? Because I want to do my part to help improving the environment and stop the climate change. And I think to forgo meat and animal products 3-5 days a week is a good thing to start with. I want to be a person to look up to for my kids.

The most important ingredients to get that cheesy and smoky flavour

There are 2 key ingredients you need, to take that casserole from an ordinary creamy pasta dish to the very best vegan Mac’n Cheese.

Nutritional Yeast (Yeast flakes)

  • This yeast is grown specifically to be used as a food product. The yeast cells are killed during manufacturing and not alive in the final product. I is used in cooking and has a cheesy, nutty and savory flavor.
  • It’s naturally low in sodium and calories
  • It’s sugar-free, fat-free, gluten-free and vegan
  • Nutritional yeast is a great source of protein, B vitamins and trace minerals

Smoked Salt

Smoked salt is that special extra that enhances my mac’n cheese with that special aromatic bacon like taste. It is an aromatic salt, smoked with any number of select bark free woods for up to 14 days
