Leave a comment

Comfort food cravings are hard to curve. With this recipe you get the best of both worlds: that unbeatable feeling of having a warm bowl of Mac n’ Cheese in your hands without feeling as though you took ten steps backwards on your wellness journey. So how does this dish mimic that cheesy goodness that makes Mac n’ Cheese a lifetime favorite? Well, the secret is the cashew sauce… it’s packed with flavor and plenty of protein! Kick it up a notch and use gluten free pasta (try brown rice shells), and you’ll have a new favorite go-to vegan dish that even the kids will love.
