Meatless Mondays: BBQ Meatballs & Mac & Cheese (Vegan)

There’s a certain comfort that macaroni & cheese brings, that you don’t have to miss out on if you’re removing dairy from your diet… or, if you would like to try something new. As I mentioned before, I was very skeptical about non-dairy cheeses, but Daiya has changed my mind completely! Yes, it’s from a box. And yes, it still tastes amazing.

As far as the BBQ “Meatballs”, I am a huge fan of Gardein. They have so many products that have made life much easier (and tastier) for me, as a Baby Vegetarian. This particular meal is easy to prepare, and it doesn’t take long. The work is already done for you!


Here’s what I used:

1 bag of Gardein’s Meatless Meatballs

1 box of Daiya’s dairy-free macaroni & cheese

Your favorite BBQ sauce



Here’s what I did:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 and bake the meatballs for 18 minutes.
  2. Boil the macaroni in 2 cups of water and drain them when they are done (about 7 minutes).
  3. Add the cheese sauce and stir. Use pepper and salt to season.
  4. When the meatballs are done, use your favorite BBQ sauce to cover them.
  5. Enjoy!

Make sure to let me know how it turns out if you try it! 😀
