Who doesn't love guacamole? Who doesn't love mac and "cheese"? So.. why not combine them? Your mind might tell you it's wrong or that it will taste weird, but listen to your stomach. Your stomach wants this, and your taste buds will be very happy with you. You need to try this recipe. I surprised myself a bit with this one, but it is seriously delicious.
I've been seeing this one recipe for avocado mac and cheese all over the place, but I haven't seen anyone veganize it. I decided to take on that challenge and I'm really glad I did. As I've stated before, I don't really love cashew creams. I prefer the taste of nutritional yeast in my cheese sauces because it has the flavor of cheese, which is what I desire more than the creaminess. However, with the addition of avocados, you get it all.. creamy, cheesy, plus the lime! I've never had a mac and cheese that I could describe as "summery" before, but this sure is.
You also have some options for additional vegetables or protein with this dish. This time, I decided to keep it plain to get the full flavor of the sauce. Sometimes, though, I really just love a good crunch. Anything from chopped red onions, roasted red peppers, corn, black beans, even celery would be a great addition to this pasta.
