You’ve heard of vegan cheeses (fauxmage) and you’ve been asking yourself how you can use them to make your favorite recipes? It’s a lot easier than you might think!
Find out, in this article, how you can make 5 simple and delicious recipes with fauxmage to help cut cheese out of your diet but not deprive yourself!
Mac & vegan cheese recipe: a fan favorite comfort food!
A mac & cheese with no cheese? Why, of course! A mac and cheese made with vegan cheese is just as delicious as the traditional version. Even shredded fauxmages will make skeptics think twice!
Nowadays, you can pretty much replace cheese with vegan cheese in any mac & cheese recipe but some recipes are also specially designed to be cooked with fauxmages, like this Butternut squash vegan mac and “cheese”.
To make the very best cheeseless mac and cheese, we recommend a shredded cheddar-style plant-based cheese: a classic that is always popular! Other types of grated fauxmages such as tex-mex or mozzarella are also fine choices, and it all depends on the flavor profile you wish to achieve. Remember, you’re the chef!
