There is probably no dish more comforting than a good baked macaroni cheese, especially when you take it out of the oven and it is all golden and bubbling. Unfortunately there is probably no dish with more dairy and gluten in it than macaroni cheese! Luckily I’ve had a go at making it with gluten and dairy free ingredients.

I used Barkat Gluten Free Macaroni and Veganic Dairy Free Cheese.
