Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese (Vegan, Nut Free, Soy Free)

By November 7, 2018Easy Vegan Dinners

Not only is this Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese vegan, nut free, and soy free… it’s also incredibly delicious! And, it’s perfect for the whole family no matter the dietary restrictions! The PERFECT vegan mac and cheese! 

I’m obsessed with plant-based mac and cheese recipes. There are just so many great ways to eat this rich, creamy childhood favorite, which is why I have many Vegan mac and cheese recipes on my blog (scroll below).

And this week, I have another one for you! A vegan mac and cheese made with healthy butternut squash!

It can be challenging to find a healthy dinner for you as well as the whole family to enjoy during the holidays. Pleasing vegans, as well as adults and kids with food allergies, can difficult. This is why my nut free, soy free, vegan Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese dish is perfect for anyone!

To me, Fall is all about earthy, grounding meals, filled with CARBS!
I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t eating pasta 2-3 times a week these days. That’s why I am LOVING this earthy butternut squash mac & cheese. It’s got all the ooey-gooey, creaminess of vegan mac and cheese but with an earthiness, and slightly sweet flavour that screams fall comfort.
The squash adds an extra level of gravitas that elevates this dish from childhood favourite to an impressive but simple weeknight meal. PLUS, it makes a great main or side for holiday dinners!
