Vegan Mac and Cheese

This is probably not the healthiest choice around but it sure is healthy and it is vegan.

Instead of cheese we will use with nutritional yeast flakes. This will be our replacement of cheese and thus won’t make this dish very heavy.

Even though cheese contains a lot of healthy elements, though too much of it can make you very fatty.

You can buy nutritional yeast flakes at your local health stores or online.

When you open the package, it may look like sawdust, but be assured that you can make a lot of healthy recipes with this.

Do I got your attention now?

Great, let’s get started with our Mac and Cheese
