Vegan Tahini Mac and Cheese Sauce

Vegan Tahini Mac and Cheese Sauce

The creamiest, most addicting vegan pasta sauce. I could eat this straight from the blender on a spoon!

I find a lot of vegan pasta sauces to be a little time consuming and/or expensive to make (1 cup of cashews for a creamy sauce adds up $$$). This sauce is affordable, simple, and very easy to whip up.

I could eat this multiple times a week, every week. It never gets old! 

I pair mine with brown rice pasta or chickpea noodles, then add in some green peas and spinach (or any veggies on hand)!
