Easy Plant-Based 'Mac n Cheese'

Ready for an amazingly, easy, and healthy mac n cheese recipe? Perfect as a Thanksgiving side dish or anytime you are craving a creamy mac n cheese!

The key to making this dish is whisking the cheese sauce constantly! Don't stop until the cheese mixture has started to thicken up. If you leave the cheese sauce on the pan for too long it will start to burn.

You can use the cheese sauce on top of noodles as is or make it into a casserole for a different texture. Either way, you can't go wrong!
