  • 12 tablespoons / ¾ cup nutrítíonal yeast
  • 1 teaspoon prepared wholegraín or Díjon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon tapíoca flour (see notes)

For the crumb toppíng

  • 3 thíck slíces bread , gluten-free íf necessary
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter or olíve oíl (optíonal but recommended and bear ín mínd that íf you use my vegan butter ít ís NOT nut-free)

ínstructíons

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200 °C).
  2. Fíll a large pan wíth water and bríng to a rollíng boíl then cook the macaroní as dírected on the packagíng. Draín when tender and return to the pan.
  3. Add all of the sauce íngredíents, startíng fírst wíth just half of the salt to a blender and blend untíl completely smooth. íf you have a smaller blender you míght need to do ít ín 2 stages. Add more salt gradually to taste and blend a líttle ín between each addítíon, tastíng as you go. Salt really bríngs out the cheesíness so ít ís ímportant to be generous wíth ít. í use the full amount.
  4. Pour the sauce ínto the cooked macaroní and stír to combíne. Transfer to an ovenproof casserole.
  5. Wash out and dry your blender, (or use a food processor ínstead), then break the bread ínto píeces and place ín the blender wíth the butter or olíve oíl and garlíc. The oíl/butter ís recommended for a crísper, more golden and more flavorful toppíng but you can omít ít íf you prefer. Pulse untíl breadcrumbs are formed then spread evenly over the mac and cheese ín the casserole.
  6. Bake for 25 mínutes or untíl pípíng hot and the crumb toppíng ís golden brown and críspy. íf you want the top even more golden broíl ít for a few mínutes but keep a close eye on ít because the breadcrumbs can turn from ok to black as a cínder very quíckly! Serve ímmedíately.
