So What Makes Vegan Mac and Cheese  Healthier Than Regular Mac and Cheese?

You can make a delicious homemade vegan cheese sauce with ingredients like nutritional yeast, cashews, carrots, and sweet potatoes that make a velvety rich creamy cheese sauce that you might just think is the real deal.

You can also use this decadent cheese sauce for nachos!!

(If you are short on time and want to make a quick vegan mac and cheese recipe for the kids, you can skip the veggies and just substitute shredded vegan cheese for regular cheese to make an easy and quick vegan  cheese sauce.)

Just keep in mind that even though it takes more time to make vegan mac and cheese sauce with nutritional yeast and veggies, it is full of vitamins, protein, fiber, and healthy fats that are not in regular mac and cheese. 

Best of all, kids won't taste the hidden veggies in their creamy mac and cheese. And you really don't need to mention that fact if you don't want to, LOL.
