I have been posting this bad boy on instagram like crazy for the past two weeks, so I figured I would get it down here on my site so that we both had the recipe on hand whenever the craving comes calling. 

I have made a number of different variations of vegan Mac and Cheese but I must say this has been my favourite. I love adding spice to everything but adding CURRY to this was just hella yes please. If you aren’t a curry fan, this recipe won’t be for you but if it IS, then you are so very welcome.
