Updated: Jun 24
Afro-Vegan Society has named June National Anti-Dairy month. That means all month long we've been sharing resources and recipes that will help you eliminate dairy from your diet for good. Not only is animal-derived dairy unhealthy, it's production is detrimental to the environment, and exploitative of the cows and the workers within the industry. You may know ALL of this already and are still struggling with letting go of dairy products. That's why each Saturday this month we've been releasing new cooking demos and education sessions during the Dump Dairy Workshop Series. You can register for FREE today and stream all of the workshops on demand through the end of June!
Still, we all know that cheese is one of the most difficult things to say goodbye to when going dairy-free. That's why we've compiled some of the best soul food mac and cheese recipes from across the internet to show you that it is possible to have bomb baked mac and cheese while vegan. Let's get into the recipes!
