Ah, macaroni and cheese. The epitome of comfort food. A one-pot meal that can be eaten simple and cheesy, or dressed up with veggies, veggie bacon, or breadcrumbs. While there are plenty of ways to make yummy dairy-free mac and cheese at home – meltable vegan cheese shreds, nutritional yeast, nut cheeses, and even vegetables – sometimes it’s nice to have a boxed mac that can be prepared in less than an hour with just a pot of boiling water or even a microwave.
Now, there are skeptics out there who believe that no boxed vegan mac and cheese could possibly complete with the dairy original. That may have been the case a decade ago, but it isn’t anymore. There are several brands that have tried their hand at mac and cheese. Whether you like to deck your mac and cheese out with lots of extra veggies and vegan cheese shreds or like to pop it in the microwave and call it a night, there’s a product out there for you. Check out these 10 mac and cheese dishes that prove you don’t need dairy to make a mean mac!
