Mac Daddy

This recipe comes courtesy of Veganomicon. Now, it's vegan macaroni and cheese. I don't want to give you the wrong impression. There's no cheese in this, and cheese lovers will certainly know it.'s still quite tasty. My spouse was hesitant, but gave it a big thumbs up.

I decided to go with this because we have no cheese, and no money until the weekend when August and a new budget starts.

I'm not going to give the directions (you'll have to buy or check out the book for that).

I made Ellie Kreiger's macaroni and cheese last week - she adds frozen squash to the cheese, milk and pasta to give it a bright orange hue and some nutritional value. I ate it for days, but, frankly, I don't think squash and cheese go that well together. Yours sounds like it might taste better, even if it isn't orange.

Nice dish. It looks scrumptious.
