Who doesn’t love a warm bowl of creamy vegan mac ‘n’ cheese goodness?! Sure you can make it from scratch, but there is something so convenient and nostalgic about boxed mac. Lucky for vegans nationwide, there are tons of easy-to-prepare cheesy staples for the adventurous foodie and macaroni purists alike. No matter which camp you’re in, here’s our list of 10 vegan mac ‘n’ cheese brands you need on your shelf.
New product alert! Our favorite chickpea pasta brand now offers a box of vegan cheesiness. Yup, you heard right! Banza is offering Plant Based Mac with “cheese” derived from sweet potatoes, nutritional yeast, and pumpkin.
This mac ‘n’ cheese product is high in plant-based protein as the pasta is made from lentils, peas, and rice. Modern Table offers several flavor options including Classic Cheddar and Southwest Style which have us seriously obsessed.
From flavored jackfruit to seitan jerky, Upton’s is the Bomb.com when it comes to vegan offerings. Their Ch’eesy Bacon Mac is no exception. Mmmm, vegan bacon! This mac is unique as minimal cooking is required. All you need to do is mix, heat, and eat. Upton, we like your style.
We’ve got another freezer option for ya! Amy’s Vegan Rice Mac & Cheese is seriously creamy AF. The recipe is both soy- and gluten-free making it a super inclusive and comforting dish to have on hand.
Two words: Cauliflower Mac. It is no surprise that cauliflower, the glow-up of the century, is the star of this cheesy dish and we couldn’t be happier. If you like a combo of whole foods and convenience favorites, this one's for you!
Pamela's Vegan Mac
Satisfy your cheezy cravings with this high protein vegan mac ‘n’ cheese. With 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving and the serious taste of childhood, what’s not to love? Bonus: this boxed mac is offered in a family-size pack, too.
Road's End Organic
We’re loving Road’s End Dairy Free Mac & Chreese. Nope, “Chreese” is not a typo, but a clever way of saying this mac is totally cruelty-free. Try the penne, shells, and elbow noods in cheddar and alfredo flavors.
For healthy comfort food, look no further. Annie’s Vegan Shells & Creamy Sauce was created with organic ingredients like pumpkin and sweet potato. Or go for Annie’s Cheddar Flavor Vegan Mac for a more traditional option.
Mac 'n Chao
You’ve had Chao slices, but what about the Mac ‘n Chao from your friendly freezer? The folks at Field Roast found a way to use their creamy slices in their mac ‘n’ cheese. Try Creamy Original or Chili Mac ‘n Chao. Not sure about you, but our minds are blown!
Daiya is a go-to vegan brand, and for good reason. The company offers several Deluxe Cheezy Mac flavs. Love the squeezable pouch of vegan cheese like we do? You can purchase that separately to squeeze atop all of your favorite dishes.
