Amy's Amazing Vegan Mac and Cheese

Submitted by: AMYJUSTAMY

Introduction

So delicious! I am able to fool the most avid M&C lover into believing this dish is rich and decadent. It's the raw cashews that give the "cheese sauce" its creamy consistency. Give it a try and see for yourself. So delicious! I am able to fool the most avid M&C lover into believing this dish is rich and decadent.
