Vegan Mac n Cheese // Leah's Plate

As a kid I think I asked my mother to make me mac n cheese for dinner every night – I couldn’t get enough of it! As a teenager I would come home from parties at midnight and make myself a huge bowl of mac n cheese (I know – I was sooooo healthy)!

In my mature, healthy adult life I still like mac n cheese, just a MUCH healthier version! This version is vegan and gluten-free and every ingredient is nutritious. I used Modern Table lentil pasta, which tastes like real pasta, but is made with just lentils! They are packed with 14g of protein per serving and I love that they ensure the lentils are non-gmo too! As you may be aware, lentils don’t contain any gluten either 🙂

The healthy ‘cheese’ sauce is made with sweet potato, cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, almond milk, chili powder, pink sea salt and pepper.
