When you think mac and cheese, you think creamy, indulgent, comfort food, right? Well, here’s my healthier gf df version but it still ticks all of those boxes and more! I LOVE it.

It doesn’t include soaked cashews, nutritional yeast flakes or anything complicated. Just 4 basic ingredients. Now you can have it as an everyday staple like me!!

4 Ingredient Mac and Cheese

Here’s my gluten, dairy free mac and cheese recipe.  Its one of my favs as its creamy and delish but really simple to make and there’s no complicated/expensive ingredients to buy.
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 1 person


  • 120 ml dairy-free milk
  • 85 g dried macaroni I used Sainsbury’s
  • 300 g peeled cubed butternut
  • 40 g grated vegan cheese I like Asdas own mozzarella but any will do
  • Salt, & Rosemary


  • Bake half the butternut in the oven for 30mins at 180oC with a sprinkle of rosemary, salt and a tiny bit of oil/spray.
  • After its been cooking for 15 mins, start prepare the following:
    >The sauce: boil the remaining butternut for approx. 10 mins until soft and drain. Tip the boiled butternut, cheese and milk into a smoothie maker and blend until smooth.
    >The pasta: Cook as per the instructions on the packet (usually 4-6mins in boiling water). Drain and set aside.
  • Once the roasted butternut is cooked, mix everything together – the pasta, sauce and roasted butternut.
  • Add salt and a generous pinch of your fav herbs (I think rosemary is best!). You could also add ham, cooked sausage, bacon or whatever you fancy at this stage.
  • Put your mac and cheese in an oven proof dish. 
    Optional: Add extra grated cheese & herbs on top.
  • Place into the oven for 10mins, until it’s heated through and the cheese has melted.
  • Eat!!!
