Easy, Quick & Good - Made Vegan, Member laur.b

I'm vegan so I used a Rice-based vegan cheddar block (by Galaxy foods) which I grated and used a mixture of Earth Balance and Smart Balance Light for the butter. I used Almond milk (unsweetened). I followed others' recommendations and used almost 2 cups of shredded cheddar. It tasted great, really creamy. I wanted something super fast and this fit the bill. I did add some onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Great comfort food.
