World Vegan Day is celebrated every year on November 1 to mark and promote the benefits of veganism for humans as well as the natural environment. Veganism is a dietary practice, in which people refrain from eating meat and animal-based products (including dairy products). That limits many delectable milk-based or dairy-based delicacies. Mac n cheese, for instance, is one dish that is packed with oodles of cheese and is a favourite of many. The joy of gorging on the rich and comforting mac and cheese, while curled up in a cosy blanket is unparalleled, don’t you think? 

However, those who have turned vegan end up giving up on their cravings for mac n cheese. But what if we tell you that now you can make mac and cheese at home. This recipe is vegan, dairy-free, and won't even hamper your weight-loss goals.
