I’m not gonna lie, I love me some mac and cheese so when I come across a website that trying to say it has the best vegan version you’ll ever eat, I’m skeptical. Regardless, I decided to try making the recipe and see how it’d turn out.
While I did enjoy this recipe, I doubt it’s the best vegan version of mac and cheese you’ll come across. I did like that it had plenty of sauce to coat the pasta and have some left over afterwards and while you do get some cheesy flavor think to the nutritional yeast, mommy and me both thought that the garlic was even more prevalent (in fairness to you readers, I did use a big clove but they also never said what size of clove to use so…). There’s also a jalapeño that gets blended in with the cheese sauce (seeds and all) but you’d never be able to tell ’cause there was zero heat ! I tried adding a few extra slices on but it still didn’t add any heat. If anything I think I liked the mac and cheese more without the raw slices. I’d be willing to try making this again but I’d definitely add more nutritional yeast and use a smaller clove of garlic. Oh yeah, my mom is trying to figure out if she has a gluten intolerance so we had these with gluten-free pasta made from chickpeas and it was surprisingly similar to the pasta that does have gluten !

I was not paid in any form to mention this recipe.
Take care y’all !
