Vegan Mac n Cheese

If there was ever a recipe I toiled over that I've chosen to share, it will be this one. I've done so many variations of vegan Mac n Cheese trying to get the flavors and textures right, because I truly wasn't trying to give up this dish when I became aware of my dairy allergy. What I've settled on is something most definitely creamy, rich and comforting. So I'm sharing my recipe with you all using both my vegan cheddar and vegan cream cheese recipes. Both have been posted so you can check them out or you can use store bought. Either way guys, please enjoy this recipe 😉.
