Plant-based Mac And Cheese Recipe

This rich & creamy vegan mac and cheese is by far the best I’ve ever had & always a hit with vegans & non-vegans alike. Healthy & easy to make this recipe has got two sneaky additions (summer squash & carrots) to help ensure that your getting in a reasonable amount of healthy nutrients. I promise you will be shocked at how good this plant-based cheese sauce is! It is the number one all-time favorite meal in my household.

Anything I can prepare in my high-speed blender (Vitamix) I will! It’s a serious game changer & perfect for cooking sauces. If you only own a regular blender don’t worry I got you with an alternative for this recipe.
