Bajan Macaroni Pie takes the classic flavour of American mac-and-cheese and adds a twist of Caribbean flavours. With Bajan seasoning, tomato sauce, and mustard, it has a very peculiar flavour that makes Mac-and-cheese way more interesting!

To prepare it, start with blending together all the ingredients for the tofu cheddar. Then, prepare the roux, cook the macaroni, and finish the seasoning with the additional ingredients for the sauce. When al dente, transfer the macaroni to a large bowl with the sauce and mix everything together. Transfer to a greased baking dish, sprinkle with breadcrumbs on top, add a little vegetable butter, and put in the oven for one hour until it forms a crust.

Take out of the oven and allow to cool for 15-30 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
