Dairy Free Mac and “Cheese” with Broccoli

As the temperature drops, I’m craving ALL the comfort food. I’m especially dreaming of mac and cheese lately. I used Ripple pea milk and sweet potato to create a thick and creamy “cheese” sauce. This recipe is totally gluten-free and dairy-free! It’s perfect comfort food for those cold winter nights. Enjoy!
