My macaroni cheese recipe substitutes cow's milk for oat milk (we've found oatly to be, by quite a way, the best milk alternative when cooking), vitalite or similar dairy-free spread for butter/margarine and cheese for golden breadcrumbs.
- Diced bacon
- Macaroni pasta
- Breadcrumbs (preferably golden)
- White sauce - 40g vitalite spread, 40g plain flour and 500ml oatly milk.
In a separate saucepan create the white sauce by melting 40g vitalite spread and then sifting in 40g flour. Cook for 1-2 minutes, remove the pan from the heat and gradually whisk in the oat milk until it makes a smooth sauce. Return to the heat, bring to the boil, adding a pinch of salt, and then simmer for 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Whilst the pasta is cooking and the white sauce is simmering heat 1tbsp of oil in a frying pan, then fry off the diced bacon for around 5 minutes.
Add the pasta and bacon into a large ovenproof dish and mix through the white sauce. Top with golden breadcrumbs and bake in the oven for around 10 minutes. Serve with warm bread and tuck in.
