Forget macaroni and cheese. Forget vegan macaroni and cheese. What you really want is this ultimate recipe for Vegan Macaroni And Cheese Skillet. It's like you took plain old mac and cheese, made it vegan, then dropped it from the top of the awesome tree and it hit every limb on the way down.
I know that sounds like a lot of praise for a vegan mac and cheese dish right? I mean, vegan macaroni and cheese recipes are everywhere. In fact you can check out our favorite vegan mac and cheese recipe here if you'd like. But is there a new king mac now? Maybe.
Hot For Food is one of our favorite vegan recipe creators of all time. It's mostly because they are a lot of fun and make veganism and, and vegan recipes, easy and accessible to everyone. I've even had one of their recipes forwarded to me by an omnivore friend that didn't even realize it was vegan.
I was reading some of the reviews for this recipe on their channel and they were all super positive. Hey, of you can make vegan mac and cheese that amazing then you are doing something right. One reviewer named Artemis said, “I JUST MADE LAUREN'S MACARONI DISH AND GUYS I AM WOKE THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER MADE I'M LITERALLY MAKING THIS FOR EVERY NONVEGAN I KNOW.” Just a note, they used all caps so I just copied and pasted it here.
So this recipe is pretty simple really. You just need some good macaroni, the vegan cheese sauce, and a skillet. What kicks it up a notch is adding in the vegan beefy crumble. This makes it somewhat similar to hamburger helper meals. I know some people love those things. They are an American icon really.
This recipe answers the question if there could be a delicious vegan recipe to duplicate the traditional hamburger helper meals that everyone knows about. I'm happy to tell you that not only does it mimic those things, this vegan mac and cheese beats it hands down.
