cashew vegan mac n’ cheese

friday night dinner plans?

this vegan mac n’ cheese recipe is creamy, thick and is the perfect vegan comfort food. it’s great for a protein fix and it’s also super quick and easy to make. yay. you can adapt it’s ingredients to suit what you want / need / feel like and add some meat in if your not strictly vegan. I’ve adapted my recipe over time and I think it’s at a good place of comfort, taste, ease and health now. it’s also got my good friend turmeric in it which gives it a fab yellow colour and has a whole list of health benefits. enjoy making it and make sure to make more so you have leftovers 🙂
