In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

We kind of thought that we had seen it all when it came to macaroni and cheese. Boy, were we wrong. This eggplant cheese sauce featured in the Vegan Caramelized Onion Mac 'N' Cheese recipe by Dana Shultz at Minimalist Baker took us by surprise and totally blew our minds.

So concludes Vegan MoFo 2014 and 30 posts in 30 days. We had lots of fun and we hope that you did too!  Thank you for joining us and see you next week!

Sauerkraut

macaroni & sauerkraut cheese: dangerously cheesy duo! mac & shrews, vegan macaroni and cheese, vegan mac and cheese

In September, we're posting one cartoon per day as part of Vegan MoFo. Our theme, *Vegan Faux Show*, showcases various methods for creating vegan versions of classic foods like bacon, eggs, and cheese.

Vegan macaroni and cheese has gotten pretty sophisticated over the years. Some of the earliest recipes relied on lemon juice for tang and depth of flavor.  Then miso paste and tahini emerged on the scene.  And more recently insane ingredients like heart of palm and sauerkraut are tempting us with promises of signature cheesy depth of flavor.

With countless versions of vegan macaroni and cheese under her vegan belt, Isa Chandra Moskowitz of Post Punk Kitchen fame does it yet again with her Mac & Shrews recipe.

Nutritional yeast tends to be a mainstay in many vegan cheese and vegan savory egg recipes. Most vegan macaroni and cheese recipes will include nutritional yeast but a few exceptions are out there, such as VegNew's signature Vegan Macaroni and Cheese.  What we love about this Homemade Vegan Cheese Sauce Powder recipe by Kristi Arnold at Veggie Converter is that we can whip up this powdered sauce in bulk and portion it out for an easy vegan mac and cheese indulgence.

How can you live without cheese? Typically once people discover a vegan in their presence, this question tends to supersede the classic protein question.  Not to worry, folks. Many vegans miss the salty, cream taste and texture of cheese while creating some incredible replacements for it.

If you check out a vegan cooking blog, there is a great chance that there is one (or five) vegan macaroni and cheese recipe somewhere in the archives.  Most of us who grew up in North America associate mac and cheese with childhood comfort. Blended cashews transform into an incredible cream sauce that can be used for sweet or savory use.  Angela at Vegangela shows us how it is done with her Best Vegan Mac & Cheese recipe.
