The Best Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

The BEST vegan Mac and Cheese!

After being vegan for over 5 years and never being fully satisfied with a macaroni and cheese recipe, you know the one that actually tastes like real macaroni cheese. So, as a result, I made my own. And boy am I glad I did!

I have made more than my share of vegan mac and cheese fails from varied recipes… just ask my kids. They now ask if I made it from scratch or from a box or remember those green gross noodles….but not this one. They beg for this one.

Do you have anything that you make that your kids or significant other roll their eyes at? Let me know in the comments!

What I love about this recipe is really just how dang good it tastes. It is creamy, hearty and delicious. Comfort food at it’s finest. It’s super easy to make and comes together quickly. It does require a couple of different cheeses, but that is how you get the flavor profile. When we first started trying alternative cheeses I HATED Daiya, it was weird and didn’t melt. But the cutting board series is SO good! It compliments this recipe so well. I hope you try it out and let me know what you think!

Recipe Update! 12/1/19- I have been switching this up and using Violife Cheddar cheese, Violife Mozarella and Italian bread crumbs on top and it is crazy delicious as well! We are talking impressing a house full of omnivores who are very skeptical of vegan food, LOVED this mac and cheese!
