Creamy Vegan Mac and Cheese
Serves 6
I experienced my first Thanksgiving last year whilst in New York, and attended a lovely dinner where I made my way through mountains of delicious food. Fortunately for me, there were plenty of vegan options (many brought by me!), but I know a lot of dinners don't have such a focus on providing cruelty free options. This year, I've decided to create my own vegan Thanksgiving recipes, that are tasty, easy to make, and packed with healthy and fresh ingredients. My Creamy Vegan Mac and Cheese is made using pumpkin, nutritional yeast and spicy paprika, and is a fantastic, healthy alternative for vegans and non vegans who like to eat. This year, let's be thankful for the fact that Law and Order: SVU is still running, and that we have plenty of plant based treats to bake!
