Gluten-Free Vegan ‘Mac’n’Cheeze’ with cauliflower sauce!

Here is my own version of Mac’n’Cheeze, vegan style made with a delicious cauliflower sauce. I serve it with quinoa pasta. Sky loves this recipe, and no worries if your child doesn’t like cauliflower; the taste is subtle and blends right in with the yeast and tomato paste.
