Confession: my pre-non-dairy days were consumed with a lot of Boston Market mac and cheese. Those swirly little noodles coated in the cheesy sauce that tasted like they’d been combined for hours just soaking each other up… I had a lot of that. And I loved every minute of it. Until about an hour later when I would rush to the bathroom with a stomach ache that hurt worse that anything.

So when I made this mac and ‘cheese’, without any of the cheese, it reminded me of Boston Market’s yummy mac and cheese.

The look, not the flavor. I don’t mean to burst your bubble or anything, but it tastes NOTHING like theirs. One can only dream!
