by CHLOE delivers more than just magnificently Instagram-ready salads and veggie burgers. The food is good. And I mean really good, not just good for vegan food.

One of the most unique menu items at by CHLOE is the Mac ‘N’ Cheese, which tastes every bit as decadent as the real thing despite the fact that it doesn’t contain any cheese.

On her blog, Chloe Coscarelli, chef and namesake of by CHLOE has graced the public with a recipe for vegan sweet potato mac ‘n cheese, and although this may not be the by CHLOE sweet potato and cashew mac recipe, I set out to get it as close as possible to the real deal.

Disclaimer: The little bits of shitake bacon served on the Mac ‘N’ Cheese at by CHLOE are still a mystery to me so if anybody figures that out, please do tell.
