Happy Meatless Monday! Today I am bringing back one of my favorite childhood dishes, but in Vegan form. Like most people, I grew up on the orange stuff in the blue box. And I loved it. And I admit to having a few boxes in my pantry right now. As a matter of fact, earlier this month while at #BlogHer16 in Los Angeles, I posed for a picture with a big mac and cheese noodle and sported a cheesy smile. It was a celebration of the new Kraft Mac and Cheese, the new product has no artificial flavors, dyes or preservatives. And while it still isn’t the healthiest of foods, it is still just as delicious as it has always been. I admit the blue box makes me happy. My comfort food.
However, one cannot survive on the blue box stuff – I really need to eat something healthier. So I decided to try my hand at making a Vegan Mac and Cheese – one with hemp hearts, nutritional yeast and apple cider vinegar. It’s so easy to make- just add the ingredients to a blender, combine everything, then heat the sauce up on the stovetop.
And while it doesn’t taste quite like the blue box, it still tastes delicious. Good enough to eat mac and cheese more often. Good enough to add a few roasted vegetables to and call it a complete dinner. Enjoy your Vegan Mac and Cheese!!
