Woolworths plant-based brand Plantitude has outdone itself by releasing three new vegan and gluten-free Mac N Cheese quick meals. The new Mac N Cheese quick meals come in three different flavours of chilli, mushroom and plain cheesy.
Plantitude is well known for releasing some great vegan alternatives including cookies and cream ice cream and an extremely indulgent Belgian chocolate brownie. The high-quality of the brand shows through yet again with the Mac N Cheese . Each with its own unique flavour and perfect for filling in for a side dish or if you’re feeling extra hungry having a whole packet to yourself.
The dairy-free Mac N Cheese options are made with nutritional yeast and coconut milk powder making them super creamy and as if you’re not missing out on anything. The added bonus to each of these Mac and cheese varieties is that they’re all gluten-free as well.
Plantitude have even given you some pairing options for having their Mac N Cheese . The chilli great to pair up with a black bean burger or put it into some crunchy tofu tacos. The mushroom pairing really well with a carrot osso bucco and the original just perfect on its own or beside some roast veggies. For us, they are perfectly paired with some crunchy vegan nuggets on top.
What you need to know about cooking the Mac N Cheese
The instructions tell you to pop it in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and empty the contents in then bring it to the boil reduce the heat and simmer it. What you need to know is that you need to mix it in well before starting the heat and continue stirring this or everything will stick to the bottom of the saucepan. If you wanting it super creamy and thick and you want to go with 1 3/4 cups of water. If you don’t mind it being a little bit runnier make sure you put in 2 cups and you can add a little bit more if you want of water. The most important part of this is to make sure you let it sit because the source thickens when you leave it so make sure you don’t eat it too quickly otherwise you’re gonna miss out on how creamy it can really be.
You can pick up the Mac N Cheese by Plantitude in most Woolworths for $6 per 200g serving.
