Vegan Carbonara Organic Pasta
Category : - Vegan - Organic Pasta -
The most CHALLENGING recipe to create by far, my gluten-free pizzas being 2nd.
I love creamy dressings, creamy sauces but I don't like the heaviness of cheese & the use of cream & the loads of sugar that comes with it. And I love carbonara pasta the most, so why not just make a healthier vegan version just like I did with vegan caesar & vegan pesto. But I struggled with vegan carbonara, about 3 1/2 months to be exact.
Somehow all the vegan recipes that I researched falls short on assimilating the distinct pungent cheese taste of carbonara. My breakthrough came thru my vegan DijonTahini salad dressing, when I realised it can be the base for the pungent carbonara taste that I want. So I added some healthy nutritional yeast to improve on the cheesiness & hey presto, I finally have a healthy vegan carbonara for me & everybody to enjoy!!
Besides broccoli or cauliflower on the side, this pasta also comes with Organic savoury tofu cubes for more protein & more bite!
