20 Mar Mac and Cheese (Non Dairy & opt Gluten Free)
After trying a gazillion recipes, we finally decided on this one! It’s our favorite go to for a mac and cheese. It also makes a super good nacho dip!
You must have a pressure cooker and a high speed blender in order to achieve the best results.
The sauce is gluten free. So if you want to keep this recipe entirely GF then choose a GF pasta. This also makes enough “cheese” for 2 pounds of pasta! Unless of course you are making nachos……then it’s anyone’s guess.
OOOH and if you like it spicy, the green Tabasco is the best!
Best Mac and Cheese sauce! Even better than the best because it's DAIRY FREE! The cheese sauce is also GLUTEN FREE sooooo if you use a gluten free pasta you are good to go!

Most of the ingredients you MUST have or it won’t turn out “cheesy”. However, some of the ingredients are interchangeable such as the onion and potatoes. If all you have is a yellow or white onion and say red or purple potatoes, don’t let that stop you from making this sauce. It’s all good!
