Meatless Monday with Vegan Caprese Mac and Cheese

Welcome to the Miratel blog and to our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Pasta is a great go-to meal for vegans (and non-vegans) and we have definitely featured quite a few recipes there. Pasta is one of those complete meals in a bowl and there is an endless list of options to eat with it. Or, as is the case with today’s recipe, you can combine two recipe ideas to make one amazing dish. Today’s recipe for Vegan Caprese Mac and Cheese combine two classic dishes to form one tasty meal that everyone will love. Plus it can be made any day of the week because it’s simple to make. This absolutely delicious recipe comes courtesy of our friends at PETA.

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan margarine
  • 1 cup vegan mozzarella-style cheese shreds, plus more for garnish
