Vegan Low Carb Mac N’ “Cheese”

vegan low carb mac n cheese

K you know that mac n “cheese” I posted on my IG story yesterday?


I’ve been playing around with my new favourite ingredient…. NUTRITIONAL YEAST.

I know, I know, I’m late to the game here but hey, at least I started now and if any of you haven’t used nutritional yeast, like me, add it to your grocery list NOW. 

I have another AMAZING popcorn recipe featuring it coming your way this week or next.

It’s magic. 

This recipe can be used as a side dish or full meal. I’ve included the weight watcher points as well! I feel like kids will LOVE this and it was legit soooooo easy to make. Definitely add it to your weeknight dinner rotation.

I didn’t add more almond milk at the end just to see how it turns out, but I feel like next time I would add the tiniest bit to make the dish creamier. 

PS I found this recipe at and used dairy free butter substitute, quinoa macaroni from Costco and unsweetened Almond Breeze.
