  • 8 oz pasta shape of choice

For the roasted garlic

Cheese sauce

Panko breadcrumb topping


  • Begin by pre-heating your oven to 400 degrees. cut the top off of your head of garlic revealing the top of your garlic cloves. Smother in olive oil and salt. Cover in tin foil and cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the garlic has become tender. Carefully remove the cloves and add to a bowl. Smash with a back of a spoon to create a paste.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to pasta instructions. Drain in colander and let it sit while you make the sauce.
  • In the same pot, melt your vegan butter on medium heat. Add in your flour and cook for 1-2 minutes so the flour can cook off and it forms into a paste. Add in your plant milk and whisk for 3-4 minutes. By then your sauce should thicken up and coat the back of a spoon. Add in your cheese, roasted garlic paste, paprika, dijon, Worcestershire, pepper and salt. Mix and season more to taste.
  • Carefully stir in your pasta. Add your Mac n cheese to a greased baking dish. In a small bowl, combine your panko breadcrumb topping. Evenly coat the top of the mac n cheese with it. Place your baking dish into the oven on broil for 3-4 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs have toasted. Serve!

  1. 5 stars
    Ok, I was too lazy to do the topping and roast the garlic, but I am giving 5 stars because the cheez sauce was soooo creamy and delicious on its own! (I sauteed some garlic along with the butter and flour). I know I’m sounding like one of those people who completely changed the recipe but if the cheez sauce was so amazing, I think the garlic and topping would have just made it even more so!

    1. Hi Melina!

      Thanks for your kind words, and super glad you’ve enjoyed the recipe! Even if you would have given it your own twist, I would’nt feel guilty about it 🙂
