Healthy vegan Mac and Cheese with Bacon Recipe for an easy stovetop cheese sauce, without flour, on a cashew base. This soul food isn’t just for kids. It is a gluten-free sauce with nutritional yeast. For a no cashew, nut-free base you can easily substitute with sesame seed or pumpkin seeds.

How to make vegan mac and cheese so cheesy?
With the right spice combination, you get an amazingly cheesy sauce for the vegan Mac and Cheese, which comes quite close to the taste of Cheddar. With nutritional yeast, garlic and onions get the typical umami taste.
Are vegan mac and cheese gluten free and nut free?
The sauce for my Mac and Cheese is gluten free. Take gluten-free noodles to eat a completely gluten-free dish. If you can not eat nuts, then you can just change the cashews here. I also like to take sesame seed or pumpkin seeds. The pumpkin seeds make the sauce of the vegan Mac and Cheese greenish. Please do not substitute by weight but by volume. Like a handful cashews and a handful sesame seeds. Not 20g cashews and 20g sesame.
