healthy vegan mac and cheese

There are a ton of vegan mac and cheese recipes out there…and here’s another! This one stands out to me because the base is not just cashews or just potatoes, it’s both. Yup. The best of both worlds. 

Potatoes keep it lower in fat while cashews add creaminess and a touch of sweetness while adding the right amount of healthy fats. 

In addition to nutritional yeast for the cheesy flavor, I’ve added dijon mustard and white miso to give it an essence of sharp cheddar. Yeah baby. 

This Mac & Cheese recipe is not only delicious and health, but also:






The steps are simple:

  1. Steam
  2. Blend
  3. Boil pasta
  4. Mix cheese into pasta
