To make this vegan truffle mac & cheese, you first want to make a basic mac & cheese first by taking macaroni pasta and a vegan cheese sauce! You can get my #1 Cheese sauce recipe on page 34 of my Edgy Veg Cookbook, or my vegan nacho cheese sauce recipe online (which you can make in bulk and use for mac & cheese or other cheesy recipes).
So first, heat up some avocado oil in a skillet, and then we’re going cook up some mushrooms. So put 1 cup of sliced mushrooms in your skillet and cook them until they turn slightly brown. Then reduce the heat and let them simmer for about five minutes.
Next, add your cooked macaroni in a pot, add one teaspoon of truffle oil. I suggest starting with a teaspoon, and depending on your sensitivity to truffles, you can add more oil if you want. Truffle oil is a pretty powerful aroma so I would start small and then go from there. And now mix them together.
Afterwards, take your warmed vegan cheese sauce and add it in. Really coat each noodle so no n00d is left behind. Once it’s mixed, pour your veganized truffle mac & cheese into bowls and top it with some chopped parsley, and throw those browned mushrooms on top. And then feel free to add a drizzle of truffle oil!
And that’s how you make an easy, yet bougie, vegan truffle mac and cheese that’s also soy free and nut free!
