Annie’s is doubling down on their gluten-free, vegan cheddar seasoning. A while back they launched their Gluten-Free Vegan Mac in cheddar flavor, and now they’re adding a rice version. But it has a healthy twist. They’ve added 1/4 cup cauliflower per serving to the sauce in Annie’s Vegan Cheesy Rice.
