Homemade Vegan Mac & Cheese

This might sound ridiculous but the hardest part of going vegan for me was giving up Mac & Cheese. It’s my all time favourite comfort food, and I had perfected my non-vegan recipe 😭 Once I went vegan, I’m not going to lie to you I cheated a couple times for “real” Mac and Cheese because I just couldn’t find a vegan version that I liked.

Let me know if you try out this recipe, it’s absolutely delicious and I hope you love it!
