I am happy to report that I found an edible and quite tasty mac and cheese recipe (thank you vegangela!) and here’s the recipe. It’s creamy and cheesy, but not oily (which is what sometimes happened when I’d make the very unhealthy versions of this pre-vegan).
As you can see, I also added some peas because, well, I love peas. Though, on a side note, I would recommend halving this recipe (as noted on vegangela’s post), not only because it makes A LOT of sauce, but it overflowed in my food processor, and I have a decent sized food processor.
Immediately after this photo was taken, I wolfed down this bowl of cheezy noodles and now have a very happy smile on my face.
