Not my idea of tasty food.....
But then again, that didn't turn me off experimenting with this dish to turn it into something healthy, light and totally delicious :-)
Healthy Vegan Pasta Carbonara
(Makes 3 Serves)You'll need:
250g dried pasta of choice
3 cloves garlic
1-1 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms
1/4 head cauliflower
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 cup motherless milk of choice
1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon cornflour
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
Lentil "bacon" bits:
1/2 cup lentils (already cooked, either home made or from a can)
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
Extra nutritional yeast to serve
Bring a large pot of water to the boil and cook the pasta per packet directions.
Slice the onion and crush the garlic. Dry fry with the mushrooms until browned well.
Place the lentils in a fry pay with the soy sauce, maple syrup and liquid smoke. Dry fry until the lentils begin to pop open. You can chop them into smaller pieces if you wish to make them more similar to 'bacon bit.
Place all the sauce ingredients into a blender and blend til smooth.
When the pasta is cooked, drain and return to the pot. Pour the cauliflower cream sauce over the pasta and stir til pasta is evenly coated.
Serve with the mushroom/onion mix and lentil 'bacon' bits. Top with nutritional yeast.
