Vegan Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese

Vegan Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese does not use real milk or cheese in the recipe. It is healthy and really looks like regular mac and cheese without the dairy ingredients. It can be a delicious side dish with lunch or dinner. Nutritional yeast gives the sauce a creamy consistency. Below is this easy to make Vegan mac and cheese recipe.
