Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

You’d never know that this deliciously decadent macaroni and cheese isn’t actually made with cheese, or any dairy for that matter. Cauliflower, almond milk, and cashews are the secret to creating a velvety sauce that mimics the texture of a bechamel without any butter or milk. Soy sauce, nutritional yeast, garlic, onion, and mustard lend a cheesy, umami flavor that tastes just as good as the real thing – if not better.
