Martes Mac 'n' Cheese

The Chef: Elizabeth

The Menu: Yep, it's mac 'n' cheese time again. There are only so many days that the staff here can go without the stuff before things begin to turn ugly. Trust us, you don't want to see a group of mac 'n' cheese-deprived vegans trying to put together a magazine. So, in the interests of inter-office harmony, and because she desperately wanted some, Elizabeth whipped up a super-creamy, baked mac 'n' cheese. The recipe idea came from the forthcoming January+February (check out our new column, Veganize It!) issue, though due to the ingredients on hand a few changes were made. The results? Pretty stinking good, and by-and-large gone, which is just how we like recipes to turn out. In addition to the main, you may notice some sweet potato fries and a salad, and while neither of the sides were as notable as le mac, they did provide some much-needed nutrition to the meal .

The Goods: We've said it before, we'll say it again: If eating enough creamy, vegan mac 'n' cheese to make the devil blush is wrong, we don't want to be right.

Mmm, mac'n'cheese! I haven't had any in ages, it's time for a fix!

Looks awesome! Here's a variation with a double crispy crust that is pretty outrageous.

Okay, it's not fair to show and talk about such delicious food and not offer the recipe. I'd love a great tasting vegan version of mac'n'cheese. Willing to share?
