Mac & Cheese in a Mug

Sometimes you want a comforting, saucy Mac & Cheese but you don't want to go through the effort of making a sauce and boiling the pasta - not to mention doing the washing up!

This deliciously gooey Mac is made in a mug in under 10mins!
Perfect for students, the kitchen-less and hungry people everywhere!

This Mac & Cheese reminds me of the tinned macaroni I used to eat as a kid! Simple, saucy and super cheesy!

Mac & Cheese in a Mug
Recipe adapted from here
Serves 1 as a snack

1/3C dried macaroni
3/4C water
1/2tsp salt

1/4C almond milk
1/2C grated vegan cheese
1Tbsp nutritional yeast
1tsp vegan butter spread

In a large mug or medium sized bowl mix together the macaroni, water and salt. Cover with a plate and microwave on high for 4mins. Remove from the microwave and stir. If the pasta is tender move on to the sauce, if not continue to microwave at one minute intervals for a further 3mins until the pasta is done. Drain off the excess water.

Add the almond milk, nutritional yeast and cheese and stir. Microwave, uncovered for a further 80 seconds. Remove from the microwave and stir well. Finally stir in the butter spread until melted and serve!*

*I like to transfer the finished macaroni cheese into a different mug as the one you have used to cook it in will be really hot!
