There’s a good chance you’ll disagree with me if I say real cheese is easily replaceable. Especially for recipes that are literally covered in cheese. Maybe you would think, how dare of me to challenge the real authenticity of it. Well, in this case, I beg to disagree. The creaminess of this dish is magnificently tasty after it breaks down into your mouth. Lo and behold, Vegan Mac and Cheese. Super healthy, super yummy, right at your fingertips.
