As a child, I thoroughly enjoyed your cheesy delicious macaroni and cheese, and ate it at LEAST 3 times a week. Nothing made me happier than sitting down at the kitchen table, and digging my spoon into a bowl of your fake-orange goodness.
But then things changed.
I started reading labels and your magical orange powder became suddenly less appealing.
It’s been fun, but you’re no longer needed…because mother nature has a perfect swap…
Vegan Mac and Cheese with Nutritional Yeast… no yellow #5 required!
Yummm. I’ve been filling up on this Vegan Mac and Cheese with Nutritional Yeast (Click for the recipe!) Ok, it’s technically it’s couscous ‘n nutritional yeast, but it’s a GREAT swap for this comfort food.
And 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast has 12 grams of protein! Yes, TWELVE! (All for about 100 calories.) Oh, and it’s loaded with B Vitamins.
Go make this Vegan Mac and Cheese with Nutritional Yeast. Now. You won’t regret it. 🙂
