Vegan Macaroni and Cheese (with Cauliflower, but don’t tell)

vegan macaroni and cheese

Who doesn’t love mac and cheese?  My kids are always asking for it and it is one of those things that I don’t like to give them on a regular basis just because it is not very nutritious.  I have found a way to make all of us happy.  The base of this cheese sauce is cauliflower.  It comes out super creamy and cheesy tasting.  I feel a lot better about the kids eating this version of mac and cheese and the kids are happy because I let me have it a lot more.



Black Bean and Corn Salad with Chili Lime Dressing

Vegan black bean and corn salad

This past week has been so hot that I haven’t wanted to cook, which is very unusual for me.  A few night ago I was planning to make black beans and rice, but it was over 100 degrees outside and we had spent a full day kayaking on the lake.  So, all the ingredients I was planning on using went into a salad instead.  It was so light and fresh tasting, just perfect for summer.  The best part was that I didn’t have to turn on the stove.
