Retro Vegan Mac and Cheese

Retro Vegan Mac and Cheese, Easy Recipe

Alex Bury first made this recipe in 1998—back when we didn’t have good vegan cheeses. It’s cheap, easy, and yummy! We think it’s stood the test of time.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar


Whisk together dry ingredients, then mix in water, oil, mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Gently cook on medium-low heat, whisking often, until it thickens. Taste and adjust seasonings. If you want it thinner, add more water.

Stir into hot, freshly cooked pasta and serve.
