Mac with Vegan Tuna (VeganMoFo 2013)

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.

Mac with Vegan Tuna

This is not a classic Mac & Cheeze. Actually I veganized a recipe from a famous Belgian chef (Jeroen Meus).


Recipe for 2

  • 250 g macaroni
  • 125 g vegan tuna (vantastic food)
  • 125 g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small (red) onion
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 30 g green olives
  • 2 dl passata
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegan cream cheese (Tofutti)
  • 100 g vegan mozarella (MozzaRissella)
  • 1 tbsp provençal herbs
  •  cayennepepper
  • Nutritional yeast flakes
  • Panko

– 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.

– Add the passata and the herbs & spices. Mix everything very well.

– Add your cherry tomatoes and vegan cream cheese . Stir this and keep it simmering till your cheese is melted in the sauce.

– Stir in the cooked macaroni and cubed mozarella.

– Pour into a ovendish.

– Sprinkle the top with panko and nutrional yeast flakes.

– Put under the grill till it has a nice light brown colour.




  1. Looks great! Can’t get Mizzarissella here (France) but can get Tofutti, and adding that and passata to macaroni cheese is a great idea! Happy mofo-ing!
