You won’t believe how creamy, rich and actually cheesy this Vegan Mac and Cheese is! So tasty, even the kids will fall for it! No need to let them know it also happens to be healthy…
I’m not gonna lie to you and try to sell you the idea that this Vegan Mac and Cheese tastes exactly like the real thing. Cuz no, it doesn’t. But I can honestly tell you that it tastes darn good, though! And it’s rich and creamy. And yes, cheesy too!
In fact, despite not being an exact replica of a classic Mac and Cheese, this vegan version has so much to offer in the flavor and texture department, you might very well end up liking it as much, if not more, than the real thing!
The sauce is made from butternut squash, white kidney beans and nutritional yeast, which gives it a slightly sweet and nutty, tangy and cheesy flavor. As for its consistency, it’s so crazy smooth and silky that it would totally make any traditional cheese bechamel super envious! To top things off, a little sprinkle of ground hazelnuts mixed with a handful of vegan cheddar shreds provide an agreeable little crunch, with an extra dose of interesting flavors, to boot .
One thing’s for sure, this baby beats the other one hands down in the nutrition and compassion areas. And this can’t be a bad thing now, can it?
