I've had plenty of boxed versions of vegan mac n cheese -- save your money for this, and simply add some macaroni or penne noodles. Not only will you save a couple bucks, but - more importantly - it's the closest thing to the real thing I've tasted. Also, a small personal quirk: I love that it's white, not orange, and am convinced that the flavor is more sharp white cheddar (which I prefer over the flavor of straight cheddar).
Changed my life
From Alysa of Seattle, Washington on .
I loved the Leahey Gardens mac and cheese mix, but it was a little too expensive to buy regularly. The powder by itself is an amazing deal, and as a college student with little time to cook, I'm able to make a super-quick meal that isn't expensive.
When I'm making mac and cheese, I melt some margarine in the pot, and use a mixture of 1/2 c water, 1/2 c almond milk. Sprinkling Daiya in makes it amazing, and I also enjoy using paprika and a little cayenne for a different flavor. Only 1/3 cup of the powder is needed to make a huge batch of macaroni--it definitely goes a long way.
Awesome! I love this stuff!

Love this stuff. Couldn't live without it. I use for Mac and Cheez - great on its own or with a little Daiya for added richness. I also sprinkle the powder straight onto veggies. I steam some broccoli and sprinkle on the powder - my kids wolf down their veggies that way. Also good sprinkled on potatoes and popcorn. Just makes everything taste better.
Only way I eat veggie hot dogs now
From Brenda Marie of New York City, New York on .
This stuff seriously rocks. A little can go a long way too - and you can really make it with water.
My favorite way to eat it lately is on a veggie hot dog. AMAZING! So much so - that is the only way I can eat veggie dogs on buns anymore - they have to be smotehred in this.
I even got my mom hooked. Last time she had her veggie BBQ - she made this on her stove top and brought it to the yard for people to have with their hotdogs.
Makes great mac and cheese too - like real mac and cheese. Also GREAT on fries!
Only con is that it firms up kind of quick - you have to use it right away - fresh and hot - especially for the gooeyness with the fries. Can't really pack it to go. : - (

When I opened the package for the first time, I warily sniffed at it, expecting some strong nooch smell that would hopefully cook down. Nope! It smelled just like "real" cheese powder and I actually muttered "oh wow" out loud.
I prepared this with soymilk and was so impressed with how it thickened up as it cooked and then I mixed in some cooked macaroni and Earth Balance (not in the instructions, but I figured I might as well try to make it as "authentic" as possible.
This stuff is SO GOOD. If you've been wanting a vegan cheese sauce that tastes like Kraft Dinner this is it (and I've I've tried lots of others.) No weird nooch flavour or aftertaste, and the texture isn't slimy or watery. This isn't like original KD though, I'd say it's more like the white cheddar version.
This is definitely going to become a staple in my house.
