The idea of mac and cheese without the cheese is hard to wrap your head around. The cheese is pretty much the whole point of the dish, or so most people think. And then, with one bite of vegan mac and cheese, the need for dairy goes out the window. Vegans know how to make really great cheese substitutes ― a taste of vegan “parm” is proof of that. And when it comes to mac and cheese, they don’t disappoint. It is some truly delicious stuff. It’s creamy, it’s hearty and it even tastes cheese-y.
- For the chocolate bottom layer
- Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips – 1 cup
- Extra virgin coconut oil – 3 tbsp
- Smooth cashew butter – 3 tbsp (any smooth nut butter you like will work)
- For the cashew-honey-vanilla layer
- Coconut oil – 3 tbsp
- Raw honey (or pure maple syrup for vegan) – 1 tbsp
- Smooth cashew butter – ¼ cup + 2 tbsp (again, any smooth nut butter is good!)
- Pure vanilla extract – 1 tsp
- In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil and the chocolate chips over low heat and stir until melted and smooth
- Add the cashew butter and stir until smooth and creamy
- Fill your silicone heart mold (or cupcake liners) about halfway up for each cup. Put the chocolate in the freezer or refrigerator while you make the second layer.
In another small saucepan, melt the 2nd 3 tbsp of coconut oil and the honey together over very low heat while stirring. Add the cashew butter and stir until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla.
Take the mold or lined cupcake pan out of the freezer and carefully spoon a little bit of the cashew butter-honey mix into each heart over the chocolate. Take a toothpick and gently swirl the cashew layer into the chocolate (have fun with the designs!)
Put in the freezer until completely set, then remove from freezer. You should be able to easily pop each chocolate out from the mold or cupcake liners
Serve and enjoy! Store leftovers in the freezer or refrigerator to keep them solid. The chocolate layer will be hard and the cashew layer creamier.

Eating vegan is like a work of art. It takes practice and imagination to cook up delicious vegan lunch ideas, desserts, and soups. Because vegan grub omits everything made with animal products, it’s essential to get clever with your cooking. That’s where this list comes in. Granted, eating a vegan diet isn’t the easiest — especially when you’re just getting started. It takes practice to understand (and remember) what you can and cannot eat. By cutting out all animal products, you’re skipping foods that may be great sources of a certain vitamins and nutrients. For example, vegans need to focus on getting enough protein in their diet. Fortunately, there are definitely ways to eat more protein without meat. Nutritional yeast and nut butters are both ideal options.
We don’t know how it became a holiday, but February 8th is National Potato Lover’s Day — and what a wonderful day it is because we love potatoes. But we’re far from the only potato fans around here; the average American eats 140 pounds of potatoes per year. Who could blame them? Potatoes are great for making fries, mash, and casseroles as well as unconventional dishes. We have 15 recipes that showcase how versatile these little tubers are.
You know I really like a recipe when I make it two days in a row. I first made this dish for dinner last night, and though I liked it and my husband thought it was “outstanding,” I still wanted to tinker with the recipe. It was good, but I thought it could be incredible. So this morning I got to work, making a couple of small changes, and boy am I glad I did. A good recipe got even better—and I got an amazing lunch!
