You Mean I'm Not From the South?

   Hi Friends!

   A couple of weeks ago, when I was gearing up for Thanksgiving, I got a huge craving for Mac 'n' Cheese.  I blame it on Carla Hall and all the other Southern Chef's on Food TV.  It seems as though Mac 'n' Cheese is a staple on Thanksgiving tables in the South.  Well, it turns out that I'm not from the South but, that didn't stop me from getting a craving for some cheesy macaroni!

   I took this as a sign that it was time to taste test one of those Vegan boxed mac 'n' cheese that I see at the store.  I have never had one before so I have nothing to compare it to but, I have made Vegan mac 'n' cheese from scratch twice.

This is the brand that I tried:

First, I made it according to the package instructions...
And then I tasted it... Yum!

After that, I decided that I wanted a Baked Mac version.
So, I put the Mac 'n' Cheese into two small casserole dishes, added a tiny bit of Daiya Havarti, crumbled some Bean Chips on top, and put it in the oven.  
Much better!

   All in all, I enjoyed this version of Vegan mac 'n' cheese.  I don't think it tastes anything like I remember Kraft Dinner tasting, but the flavor does resemble my versions of vegan Mac from scratch.  So if you don't have time, or a recipe, I would recommend this if you're craving some cheesy macaroni.
   Oh, by the way, I do think that it's yummy enough to serve to non-veg people!

Happy Monday!
