#44 Vegan Caramelized Onion Mac and Cheese

Well the photo that came with the recipe looks significantly better than my finished product did.  This mac and cheese was really good but I think the recipe is lacking when it says only cook one and a half onions.  I think you could easily do two or even three if you really like caramelized onions - which I do. The base of the sauce is eggplant which is a really sneaky way to get more veggies into a creamy pasta sauce.  The taste is similar to vegan macs made with a cashew base.  Very creamy and good but the breadcrumbs are just sprinkled on top because this would dry out too much if it was baked in the oven.  Recipe here.

#43 Sweet Potato Mac 'n' Cheese

Another vegan recipe and another from Chef Chloe.  I am really into her books right now since her new one Chloe's Vegan Italian came out and I've just been so inspired to try all of her recipes old and new!  This one is only found on her website.  It was similar to the last recipe except it's not baked and has the addition of sweet potato which is healthy (so I didn't feel guilty not having a side veg) and very tasty.  The recipe can be found here.

#42 Best-Ever Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This recipe is from Chloe's Kitchen.  It's vegan and it's really good.  One of the best things about eating vegan is that there is no food coma afterwards.  I made another of Chef Chloe's vegan macs a few years ago.  It was #20 on my list and you can view it here.  Getting off of dairy is hard (especially for a cheese fiend like myself) but I'm giving it a go so expect more vegan macs to come.
