Creamy Vegan Spaghetti Carbonara
Growing up, Dad’s signature dish was always spaghetti carbonara, so we simply had to make a plant based version! Our creamy vegan spaghetti carbonara is not like your average carbonara – we’ve used cauliflower as part of the creamy sauce. It’s all about healthy alternatives for us.
Well, dad was blown away when he tried this vegan carbonara!
By choosing a gluten free option for the pasta, this creamy vegan carbonara can actually be a healthy, light meal!
