As planned during VeganMoFo I will be blogging about Mac & Cheese on monday. But VeganMofo starts on a sunday and that’s my resting day. But hey, how could I ever not joining VeganMoFo on the first day. So here I am, already breaking my own rules and giving you my first mac post on a sunday.
This is not a classic Mac & Cheeze. Actually I veganized a recipe from a famous Belgian chef (Jeroen Meus).

- Bring water to a boil and cook the pasta.
- Saute the chopped onion and pressed garlic clove in olive oil
- Chop green olives and add to onion
- Cut the tuna in little pieces, add to the onion and mash the tuna using a fork.
