Trust me, I know what you’re thinking. Why is this chick trying to make a vegan mac and cheese recipe? How does it work? Is it actually good?
I know you’re intrigued.
So let me explain…
First of all, you must know that this vegan mac and cheese IS DELICIOUS, creamy, cheesy tasting, a little spicy, dairy free, plant based, addicting and sooo damn good that my husband, a real cheese obsessed man, LOVED this vegan mac and cheese SO MUCH that he went back for seconds.

So now you know, that not only did this vegan mac and cheese pass a real cheese lover’s taste test, but that it’s also meat-loving man approved.

Just remember you’ll have to soak the cashews for at least 45 minutes, so keep that in mind. Just put them in a bowl…
