Quick & easy vegan Macaroni cheese

Vegan, quick & easy
I wanted to make mac & cheese for such a long time and recently was inspired to re-create the divine Pret A Mangers 'Mac and Greens'.
I became instantly obsessed with it and took it upon myself to create a version at home. 
This recipe is 100% vegan and packed full of flavour (not forgetting cheese).
I layered broccoli spears, breadcrumbs for added texture and parsley, just like Pret's version.

The cheese sauce I used was the Terra Vegane Easy cheezy vegan cheese sauce from The Vegan Kinds online shop. 
This cheese sauce is absolutely delicious and is perfect for adding into Mac & Cheese, Nachos, pizza, pasta sauces etc and apart from being delicious, it is exceptionally easy to make. 
This sauce is:
-Suitable for vegetarians & vegans
It's a great quick & easy sauce which is great for a tasty and comforting meal.

Preparation- 5 minutes
Cooking time- Around 30 minutes
Serves- 4
Level- Easy

-140g of broccoli spears (you can use normal broccoli)
-250g of macaroni pasta
-75g of cheese sauce powder (I used Terra Vegane)
-450ml of dairy-free milk
-35g of vegan cheddar cheese
-50g of gluten-free breadcrumbs
-Handful of parsley

Step 1- Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees c.

Step 2- Fill a large saucepan with water along with a pinch of salt and place over a high heat. 
Bring to the boil.
Step 3- Steam the broccoli spears in a separate pan for around 5-8 minutes. 
Step 4- Place the macaroni pasta into the large pan with boiling water and allow to cook.
Cook as the ingredients on the packet.

Step 5- Place the cheese powder into a medium saucepan along with the dairy-free milk.
Place over a low heat until thick & creamy, stirring often to prevent sticking. 

Step 6- Once the pasta is cooked, drain and spoon into an oven proof dish.

Step 7- Layer over the broccoli spears, then the cheese sauce, cheese, breadcrumbs and parsley. 
Step 8- Place the mac & cheese into the oven for around 10-15 minutes until the top is crispy and golden brown.

Step 9- Remove from the oven and serve hot or enjoy cold with salad.
