Skinnytaste Healthy Alternatives to the Food you Crave at Vegan Caramelized Onion Mac n Cheese The minute I discovered you can make queso without cashews, I was convinced cashew-less mac ‘n’ cheese had to happen. Eggplant cheese sauce seriously knows no bounds. I’ve made vegan mac ‘n’ cheese before using a cashew-based sauce and it really was amazing! But the issue with cashews is that they make recipes so heavy with their high fat and calorie content. Eggplant sauce to the rescue. This eggplant sauce is so simple to make – just a 10-minute roast before peeling the skin and adding it to the blender. The thing that sends this mac ‘n’ cheese over the top is the caramelized onions and the crispy breadcrumbs! While the sauce and noodles meld perfectly together, the addition of caramel-y, browned onions and crispy bread crumbs on top sends the flavor profile through the roof! You’re going to love this dish. Creamy Comforting Warm Cheesy Super saucy Savory Satisfying Slightly crisp on top & totally share-worthy Vegan Caramelized Onion Mac n Cheese Author: Minimalist Baker Recipe type: Pasta
