Today we are excited to share with you an allergen-friendly version of our easy vegan mac and cheese recipe. It’s creamy, cheesy, and pretty darn healthy, too! This nut-free vegan mac and cheese recipe is super simple to make and requires just a few simple ingredients. You may already have most of the ingredients in your pantry.
Instead of using cashews like in our other Easy Vegan Mac & Cheese recipe, we are using sunflower seeds, which are a rich and creamy alternative. This mac and cheese is the perfect meal to make for someone who has a nut allergy. Honestly, it may even be better than our original recipe.
I made this recipe for our recent dollar store challenge video and was able to find just about all of the ingredients there, which I think is pretty amazing. The one thing the dollar store didn’t have was raw sunflower seeds, so for the video, I used roasted seeds. This resulted in a more nutty flavor than ideal, so we prefer using raw sunflower seeds if possible.
Now, this may sound crazy, but the three key ingredients in this recipe are sunflower seeds, potatoes, and carrots. These ingredients, combined with the additional spices make for the perfect cheesy flavor. We promise you will be amazed!
As I mentioned earlier, this nut-free vegan mac and cheese recipe is part of a dollar store challenge that Jasmine and just released on our Youtube Channel. She made an Easy Vegetable Gnocchi dish, and I have to admit it’s the bomb! We only spent a total of $10 at the dollar store which made 12 servings of food, pretty amazing right?
If you want to get creative, you can use this sunflower seed cheese sauce as a dip, as a topping on vegetables, or even on pizza.
