Mac and Cheese

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

Mac and Cheese is an American staple. Like most, I remember eating boxes of this artificial yellow cheese that somehow tasted amazing. Once I tried a whole foods version some odd years later, I was heavily disappointed.

If you are used to eating box mac and cheese, you are likely used to:

  • Powdered Cheese (A strange invention really)

  • A little Tangy

  • Creamy

  • Rich Taste

I would love to tell you it tastes just the same as a boxed version, but it doesn't. When I first tried a whole foods version, my taste buds were shook. I was honestly disappointed at first, but it has become only of my STAPLE meals that I make when I am in a hurry or don't know what to make!

Of course, I've decided to make my own Mac and Cheese recipe! Turns out I actually prefer this creamy, rich sauce. Just imagine pasta smothered in a velvety, cheesy, garlic sauce. Damn.

This Vegan Mac and Cheese Recipe is:

  • Oil-Free

  • Rich

  • Creamy

  • Smooth

  • Nut-Free

This tasty cheese sauce is only 6 ingredients! I mean, even my very picky family enjoys this, so that is saying something.

Plus, I made a video showing you just how easy and tasty it is!

If you try out this recipe make sure to let me know! Leave a comment, rate it, and don’t forget to tag a photo #underthewillow on Instagram.
