1- Vegan Mac and Cheese
For those of you who don’t know, macaroni is a type of pasta that usually has cheese baked into it. So if you’re craving something cheesy on your new vehicle celebration day, why not try vegan mac and cheese? It’s just like regular dairy-based mac and cheese but without animal products.

To prepare the dish, first, boil the noodles until they’re al dente. Then pour half of a cup of non-dairy milk into your pot and add in some vegan margarine to give it an extra creamy texture that regular dairy cheese would provide.
Check on the noodles and make sure they’re soft. Then pour in the rest of the non-dairy milk, followed by salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Stir until it’s all combined, and enjoy.
