Earth Balance is a favorite brand in our house, so when we heard they were coming out with dairy-free, boxed mac & cheese, we couldn't have been happier! Managing my little one's food allergy means lots of time spent in the kitchen, so a fun convenience food like this is a welcome treat in our house.
We're all probably pretty familiar with that mac & cheese that Mom used to make for us...you know,that one that comes in the blue box. This Vegan version is made without all the dairy and yellow dyes, yet tastes surprisingly similar to that mac and cheese we're all familiar with. The prep work is the same; boil the pasta, drain, mix cheese packet with Earth Balance Buttery Spread and your favorite dairy free milk, combine everything, and WAH-LAH! Mac and cheese! I should note that this bowl of mac had been sitting for a few minutes before I got to take my photo, which is why it doesn't look as "saucy".
I only had the opportunity to photograph the cheddar flavor, because the white cheddar was eaten before I got the chance. I really liked both flavors, but my little one preferred the regular cheddar. For a quick weeknight meal, paired with a hearty side of fresh vegetables, the kids will love it and mom will get a little break in the kitchen.

One thing to note about these is that the nutrition information on the packaging does not take into account the data from the buttery spread or milks:
