Baked Broc Mac & Cheese: Macaroni Monday!

You know what's awesome about vegan mac and cheese, besides it being vegan as well as tasty mac and cheese? It's cholesterol-free! Bam. A significant improvement on the original. This one also only has less than 8g of fat per serve. Bam bam. And don't cashews make just the greatest cheesy taste of all time? Bam bam bam.

I'm on a casserole jag at the moment. Spying a bag of gluten-free macaroni (at a certain German-owned stupormarket) while Vegan MoFo is doing Macaroni Mondays was rather timely... This is a lighter, lemony-fresh recipe compared to traditional or fast-foodie mac & cheeses. A generous amount of lemon juice combined with nooch and miso is halfway between a cheese tang and citrus tang - I love that. If you're in the mood for saucier food, increase the sauce by half... or double it!
