Mini Vegan Mac and Cheese Casseroles

Potato flour, nutritional yeast, and roasted red peppers form the base of a surprisingly cheesy dairy-free sauce in these mini vegan mac and cheese casseroles. Juicy green peas add bursts of earthy sweetness throughout the creamy noodles while savory miso breadcrumbs create the perfect crispy topper. Each adorable ramekin is stuffed to the brim with this adult version of a childhood favorite and baked until the sauce gets bubbly and gooey. Enjoy this dish fresh out of the oven to satisfy your nostalgic cravings for a comforting bowl of cheesy pasta.

By Darshana Thacker Wendel,


  • 4 cups dry whole wheat macaroni
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh green peas
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk
  • ⅔ cup + 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • ⅓ cup potato flour
  • ¼ cup jarred roasted red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oat flour
  • 1½ tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons dry mustard
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ⅓ cup bread crumbs (preferably coarse)
  • 1 teaspoon white miso paste


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Cook macaroni according to package directions, adding peas the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain; return macaroni and peas to pot.
  • In a blender combine milk, ⅔ cup of the nutritional yeast, and the next six ingredients (through garlic powder). Cover and blend until smooth. Season with salt and black pepper. Add to macaroni mixture; stir well. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Arrange eight 12-oz. ramekins on a baking sheet. Spoon macaroni mixture evenly into ramekins.
  • In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, miso, and the remaining 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast; massage with fingers until mixture has a crumbly texture. Sprinkle evenly over casseroles.
  • Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • To store, let casseroles cool to room temperature; cover tightly with plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days or freeze up to 1 month. Thaw at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. Bake, uncovered, in a 350°F oven about 20 minutes or until heated through.

I liked the recipe. I made a recipe and a half of the sauce as I like lots of the cheese sauce and I also sautéed some green onions and fresh jalapeno to add in before baking.


What? No nutrition information? How many servings, and how many carbohydrates per serving? Doesn’t anyone else have Diabetes, and is watching their carb count? Marilyn

Hi Marilyn, Thank you for your feedback. We are currently working on adding nutritional information to all our recipes and anticipate for this feature to be live on the website by the end of the summer. Please stay tuned for updates!


Enjoyed very much, its a keeper. My husband added some hot sauce to his and I added a-bit of oat milk and made mine creamer.

I'm looking forward to trying this, can i sub Quinoa flour for the Potato flour?

Brooke Bennett

Hi Sylvia, Potato flour is similar to cornstarch in its ability to thicken sauces, so you may not get the same effect with quinoa flour. Feel free to give it a try and let us know how it turns out!


Is there a replacement for white wine vinegar because I refuse alcohol.

Michelle Feller

I don't have ramekins. Would you give a pan size, baking temperature, and time to bake in a bigger pan?
