Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

Dinner, Main Dish, Vegan

This Vegan Macaroni and Cheese recipe is one of my favorite comfort foods for this time of year.  I used some delicious chickpea elbow macaroni, along with nutritional yeast, and coconut milk to name a few ingredients.  I coated the top with a tasty bread crumb mixture that added a delicious, crunchy topping.  The Mac and Cheese was warm, cheesy and full of flavor.  It’s a great recipe for your holiday dinner.

Mom’s Organic is another great place to buy fresh veggies and baking ingredient’s.  Their assortment of fresh produce is outstanding.  Check out my Shop Page for a nice selection of kitchen essentials like slicers, cutting boards, food prep bowls and more.
