Cauliflower mac n'cheese - Don't get your hopes up it doesn't taste like cheese

So, does it taste like actual cheese? No, but Im pretty ok with that, because if I really think about it I do not want to be reminded of the addiction that I was once stuck in, and so many people still are.
One of the biggest reasons for people (at least the ones around me) not to go vegan is this "Ugh, I could NEVER give up cheese". First off, I get it, I was once stuck in that mentality too. Everyday after school I would cut myself up some Brie cheese & wash some grapes and I was set. Second, it makes sense, since it's 90% fat and salt, and our tastebuds were trained to seek that, but there is another reason. Milk contains traces of morphine which insures the baby calve keeps drinking and doesn't starve. The same goes for human milk, which is why it's often so hard to wean off babies.
Actually, most people never do wean off, they simply switch to cows milk. Why do we think thats better? Do we really, or is that just the dairy industry? We are scared into thinking our bones will break and our teeth will fall out once we ditch the pus/milk, but then why are there SO many people thriving on a plan-based lifestyle? Why are there SO many people whose health problems simply vanish when they stop consuming milk products? The truth is that we've been lied to, for the sake of keeping alive a multi-million dollar industry.
You don't even really want them. It's your brain craving your mothers care, love & warmth or simply the morphine tricking you.
I dare you to be a month without it and let me know if you still want it. Go clean <3

So the recipe, I promise I will come up with a better Vegan mac n'cheese in the future, and I didn't really want to call it that, but I think many people who are looking for an alternative might do well reading my little rant above.
It's still really great, and I used the sauce in a lot of upcoming recipes, it's a great alternative to marinara, which I basically put in everything.


- 1 full head of cauliflower

- As much garlic as you can handle

1 tsp turmeric
1-2 tbsp avocado oil

1 tbsp sorghum flour (or any other flour to kind of bind it)
Salt & pepper

A fuckload of nutritional yeast
1 tbsp coconut sugar

- Pasta to go with it : Optional, since you can use this sauce for all kinds of stuff.

Cook the cauliflower and the garlic in a little water, add the spices and the nutritional yeast LAST (to preserve all the nutrients) & blend it with a stick blender or whatever really, but until its nice and creamy.

So quick, healthy & cruelty free. 


Have a beautiful day,
