How it started
Cooking for a vegan family
During the pandemic I did a lot of home cooking. My two young boys and I went through all the boxed vegan mac & cheese at the store, but nothing hit right.
After serious taste-testing from the boys and our friends, we cooked up a version that's tasty for grownups and kids alike!
How it's made
I set out to make a vegan mac & cheese that's tasty enough to be comfort food for the next generation.
Usually my kitchen gets its cheesiness from the dad jokes, but in GrownAs* Mac, the delicious cheesy flavor and creamy texture come from nutritional yeast and potato flakes.
Since I use dry ingredients, GrownAs* prepares just like the boxes you grew up with. Add plant-based butter & milk to our seasoning mix– no more goopy cheese pouches. Only creamy, cheesy mac!
