Vegan Slow Cooker Mac n Cheese

I've been so busy with my new daughter recently that @mrflibbletweets has been doing most of the cooking. Then I had a stroke of genius - I needed to rediscover my slower cooker. I own THIS model - which I love (however I might need to soon invest in a smaller 1.5L version for sauces and breakfasts!). I cook most things on the 'warm' setting as it runs quite hot - the 'high' setting makes the contents boil! As I'm having a bit of a love affair with my slow cooker at the moment I'll be posting a few more recipes over the coming weeks :)

5 cups unsweetened soya milk

320g macaroni (if you want to leave it to cook longer use whole wheat - it'll keep it from going mushy!)

1TBSP soya spread

2 TSP Stock powder

2 Cups vegan 'melty' cheese

2/3 cup nutritional yeast

1 TSP smoked paprika

1TSP Hot paprika

1 TSP mixed herbs

Drizzle of oil


Lightly oil the bottom of your crock pot - to avoid adding too much here an oil spray is handy. Add the rest of the ingredients to your pot.

I cook mine at high for 30 mins and then on 'warm' for 2 hours - but you'll know your slow cooker better. Mine runs quite hot hence using the lowest 'warm' setting, it may be different with yours.
