When you are hungry and looking for the perfect comfort dish, my creamy Vegan Macaroni and Cheese is just the answer!

Vegan Mac and Cheese

This recipe reminds me of my mom’s macaroni and cheese, that I grew up on.

Cheesy – Combination of nutritional yeast or noni juice and coconut milk give this macaroni cheese a cheesy flavor.

Velvety- Cashews and coconut milk makes it velvety.

Creamy- Cashews and coconut milk shine here.

Buttery- Coconut milk helps to give a buttery flavor.

I love pasta in all shapes and form, here are some awesome pasta recipes for you to also try!

    I made this tonight and added carrots and broccoli. The sauce was very good. I used black bean elbow pasta. Thanks for the recipe! Just found your site but I love it.

    I can’t believe how creamy and cheesy it looks. I don’t normally make vegan recipes but this one is certainly tempting. I can’t resist anything that looks and taste creamy. YUM!

  2. Molly Kumar

    This looks so delicious and I’ve not eaten a vegan mac-n-cheese till now. I’ve infact not at all tasted vegan cheese but your recipe is so tempting that I’ll have to try soon.

    What a fantastic vegan treat, mac and cheese can only be pure comfort, and this is dairy-free too! Pasta is always a big hit in my family, I bet my little one would like this dish!

    This looks absolutely amazing! Mac & Cheese is my weakness and I love this healthy version. Looks so creamy and I would love a big bowl of this. Can’t wait to try this soon.

    I do have some nutritional yeast…that I have used in popcorn seasoning. I will have to give it a try in a recipe and see how it goes. I am a cheese lover….so this would be new for me.

    I also love pasta, in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Basically, if I were Superman then pasta might be one of my forms of kryptonite.

    I am so impressed by how creamy this looks knowing that it’s vegan! I love nutritional yeast on popcorn and have sprinkled it on pasta before, but combined with everything else here this mac and cheese looks heavenly! I will definitely be trying this recipe.

    • I second that… also never knew noni juice could replace nutritional yeast… quite creative once again!

        Thank you, I did that especially for my clients who live abroad and can’t get access to nutritional yeast flakes. It tastes exceptionally good with noni juice!
