Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

Vegan Baked Pasta

Alternate Ingredients: I think this would also be good with crumbled firm tofu, especially Italian Herb “More Than Tofu” or cannellini beans in place of the TVP. –embroiderama


Vegan “Cheeseburger” Macaroni

I apologize in advance if it does. It’s so hard to find recipes that are virtually fat free that my kids like – this one fit the bill so I thought I’d share it. –Gayle
