Further Ingredients:

  • 150 g Gluten-Free macaroni We used Morrisons ‘Free From’ Macaroni Pasta, as it’s gluten-free and vegan
  • 1 pinch salt for the pasta
  • 50 g vegan cheese we used Morrisons V Taste Red Leicester, a coconut oil alternative to Red Leicester
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast


  • Follow all of the instructions above for our delicious cauliflower cheese but before step 4, pop your macaroni in a pan of hot salted water and cook 4 minutes less than the packet instructions.
  • When the cauliflower cheese has been in the oven for 10 minutes, mix in the cooked macaroni with the cheese sauce and cauliflower along with two tablespoons of the pasta water, to loosen up the sauce a little, and to cover the macaroni.
  • Top with the grated vegan cheese and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast.
  • Bake until the cheese is golden on top with a little ‘crunch’ from the nutritional yeast.
