Four Vegan Options on the I Heart Mac and Cheese Menu

Did you know that the I Heart Mac and Cheese menu has a section of vegan options?

What’s Vegan on the I Heart Mac and Cheese Menu?

This fast-casual concept specializes in customizable, made-to-order bowls and sandwiches, including a vegan section filled with savory, hearty and delicious options.

The name says it all. Seriously, who doesn’t love mac and cheese?! It’s a genius concept, but a total wash for those who don’t eat dairy or meat. Everyone should be able to enjoy a bowl of creamy, ooey-gooey macaroni and cheese — and now, everyone can! They even have gluten-free pasta and bread available. So, when I say everyone, I mean everyone will be able to dig into this comfort food.

The first location of I Heart Mac & Cheese opened in 2016 in Fort Lauderdale. Additional South Florida locations include Miami, Naples, Pembroke Pines, Jupiter, and Wellington.

Have you been wondering, Where is the best vegan mac and cheese near me? Now you know. Dozens of locations are sprawled out across the country, and all of them offer a vegan menu.

The four vegan menu items include:

  • Vegan Melt Grilled Cheese Sandwich: Sourdough bread, Beyond Burger™ patty, vegan cheese, onions, tomatoes, vegan cheese sauce
  • Vegan Delight Mac and Cheese: Choice of tater tots, pasta, quinoa, broccoli, cauliflower or Beyond Sausage®, vegan cheese sauce, broccoli, roasted red pepper, mushroom, tomato and scallion
  • Vegan Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich: Sourdough bread, vegan melted cheese
  • Vegan Classic Mac and Cheese: Pasta with vegan cheese and vegan cheese sauce

The widely known vegan brand, Beyond Meat, is responsible for the yummy plant-based proteins on the menu. These include the Beyond Burger and Beyond Sausage. You might recognize the Beyond Burger from other menus.

It’s a pretty popular choice for restaurants to have on hand for vegan or vegetarian customers. It’s free of GMOs, soy, and gluten, and it genuinely looks, tastes, and feels like a real burger.

I have tried this vegan burger once before and wasn’t a fan, however, this time around, I liked it. The more bites I took, the more I enjoyed it. It certainly satisfied my burger craving!

The vegan cheeses include American and smoked gouda. The sauce is made in-house with a coconut milk base and a blend of spices. When put side-by-side with the dairy cheese sauce, it’s very hard to tell the difference between the two.

Both are equally as cheesy and creamy looking as the other. The vegan cheese melts beautifully in a bowl or sandwich. Serve it to a non-vegan, and I bet they’ll have no idea they’re eating plant-based creamy macaroni and cheese.

The I Heart Mac and Cheese menu isn’t limited to just bowls of mac and cheese or sandwiches. You can customize your creation for a whole new level of goodness. Choose your base from pasta, tater tots, quinoa, broccoli, or cauliflower, and load on the veggies!
