Creamy Vegan Turmeric Mac and Cheese

I’ve been cleaning out my blog like I clean out my closet. I hate clutter; so every once and awhile I like to go through my things and get rid of what I know I will never use. Same goes with recipes. I’ll go through all the recipes on S4B, and make a list of ones I want update the photos or taste test again.

This Creamy Vegan Turmeric Mac and Cheese was more of a photo update, but I wanted to make sure this sauce was as good as I remembered. And it IS. The idea comes from Pinch of Yum (my favorite food blog/bloggers ever), so you know it’s going to be amazing. I took a spin on her cashew cream sauce and made a turmeric version that not only gives you all the Mac and cheese feels, but all the turmeric benefits
