Vegan Cauliflower Mac & Cheese (Low-Carb)

This recipe came about because honestly I wanted Mac and Cheese! I wanted it with no dairy, no guilt, no pasta and with a crusty, yummy top.

I love this dish! It turned out great for me. It is a wonderful, healthy, low-carb version of Mac and Cheese. Keep in mind for dairy eaters out there this is not going to have the same cheese flavor. It is, however, really good!

To me this is the perfect comfort food. You can create this dish in ramekins for individual servings or in a tart pan/casserole dish.

This recipe is gluten free, grain free, low carb, dairy free, vegan, easy and high fiber.

    I am making this for dinner tonight, but the recipe seems to be incorrect.

    Is it possible the quantities for the almond milk and nutritional yeast are switched?

    I made it as written, but went I got to “Mix until smooth”, the sauce was stiffer than peanut butter. I ended up adding at least another half cup of almond milk.

    It’s baking right now, so time will tell.
    Please check the recipe and update.

    THANX!

    I made these. I thought they were one of the worst tasting things I’ve ever made. I threw them out! First thing I’ve made from this site that I thought was bad. Save your time, skip this one.
