Chickapea, a producer of grain-free chickpea and red lentil pasta, has made its first foray into plant-based meals. Although the company’s pasta has always been vegan, their original macaroni and cheese line-up is dairy-based. But they’ve added Chickapea Vegan Mac to the mix as a nutritious new dairy-free convenience.

Chickapea Vegan Mac is on the Pulse of Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Trends
If you’re looking for a straight up dairy-free mac and cheese, then you might want to move on. But if you’re seeking a healthy and rich pasta dinner alternative, then I recommend reading on. Chickapea Vegan Mac is organic legume pasta paired with a creamy sweet potato and pumpkin sauce. Think of it like Annie’s vegan mac with creamy sauce, but with even more wholesome ingredients and just a hint of umami cheesiness. It’s also very high in protein and fiber, and has no added sugars and less sodium than many brands (280mg per serving).
