Best Vegan Broccoli Mac N Cheese

 

Creamy and comforting, this dish is so delicious!  Sparked by gluten free kid one evening when he wanted mac n’ cheese for dinner….this happened.  Long gone are the days of Kraft and Velveeta mac in this pod, and while trying to eliminate our dairy, we so had to think up something and think it up quick!  Annie’s brand gluten free mac is an alternative, yet with dairy nonetheless.  We absolutely LOVE their gluten free vegan mac (no dairy!!), however SO hard to find unless you’re at a very specific Whole Foods when it just so happens to be in stock.  Hmmm…we needed our own easy, homemade version to make whenever we wanted and now you can too!

                                          Making the sauce!
