Vegan Mac and Cheese

Say what? When a coworker told me about her vegan mac and cheese, quite frankly I was very wary. Mac and cheese is a sacred dish, how can it go vegan? However, since I am looking for some healthy alternatives (after packing on 5 pounds eating tray after tray of peach cobbler this summer) I decided to give it a go.

I misunderstood the recipe (a matter of not reading the whole thing, but forging ahead) and actually mixed the bread with the "cheese sauce". Don't do this.

It, of course, absorbs too much of the sauce when you bake it. That being said, I have to say the "cheese sauce" was so good I was taking samples of it before it even made it to the oven. So good.
Also, I did not use the nutritional yeast as I just didn't want to buy too many ingredients at once. I will the next time. From what I hear it adds even more of a cheese delusion.
As for the left over almond milk? It is going in my breakfast smoothies. Very tasty.
Give it a try!
