Cashews are magic! I am in love with Cashew Mac and Cheese with Coconut Bacon! What can I say? It’s a game changer.
When we were in San Diego recently, we ate at one of the best vegan restaurants ever! Although we went to many vegan restaurants, Donna Jean stands out as one of the best plant-based eating experience we have ever encountered. Click on the link and check out their menu.
First, we ate the most incredible mac and cheese I have ever eaten. It was served in an iron skillet, and it was so creamy and delicious, I couldn’t believe it was vegan. Of course, I asked how it was made. The waitress said it is a combination of raw cashews, miso, and coconut milk. So, after many trial and errors, I mastered it.
Then, I figured why not make it more decadent by adding coconut bacon. Although I have made tempeh bacon, as well as mushroom, eggplant and soy bacon, coconut bacon is by far my favorite. And, it is so easy to make.
I hope you love this mac and cheese as much as I do. Add the coconut bacon, or leave it off.

It is fabulous either way. Add a little hit sauce to kick it spa notch, if that is your thing.
