Buffalo Chick’n Mac & Cheeze


We could seriously eat this buffalo mac & cheeze everyday. It is THAT GOOD. All it takes is a few simple ingredients:

Gluten free pasta shells (we like this brand)

Olive oil or vegan butter

All Purpose Flour (choose your favorite gluten free flour if you want it to be gluten free)


Rice milk (we like this brand)

Dijon mustard (here is an organic brand)

Vegan buffalo sauce (try out this brand!)

Vegan cream cheese

Vegan cheddar cheese (We like to shred the Daiya cheddar cheese block)

Chick’n or vegan pork (try out this brand!) (Omit this or substitute for tofu or jackfruit to make gluten free)

    Looks so yummy! What non dairy milk would you recommend instead of rice milk? I don’t tolerate it well. Thank you!

      Hi Sarah, Thank you! You can sub for any other plain, unsweetened non-dairy milk. It may alter the taste a bit but should still be delicious!
