Vegan mac & cheese

Vegan mac & cheese

Yes I made a VEGAN Mac and cheese and it is amazingly good! Part of the flavor is from the eye trickery (if the color looks like cheese it helps the flavor).
who doesn’t love Mac and cheese?❤️🧀
I know all of you want some at some point in your life so let’s make it vegan and dairy free!

Reasons to love this Mac & cheese!

• vegan.
• dairy free.
• gluten free cheese sauce.
• healthy.
• protein.

vegan Mac & cheese

Cashews. Soak them over night or in very hot water for 20 minutes.
Dairy free milk. I used unsweetened coconut milk but any dairy free milk will work.
oil. Use a very mild tasting oil.
Lemon juice. I always and I mean always use fresh.
Pumpkin purée. You can also use tomato purée but I mean who doesn’t like pumpkin?
Turmeric. Turmeric is part of what gives the cheese sauce it’s color and I to me it has a slightly cheesy flavor.
