No need to make Carbonara with eggs, bacon or pancetta, and cheese (hello cholesterol bomb) when we got your back with this mind-blowingly delicious Soy-Free Vegan Carbonara.

We exchanged the bacon for oven baked shiitake mushrooms; salty, smoky with a good chewy bite.

For the creamy, slightly sticky and rich tasting sauce, we used plant-based milk and cashews. With nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour.

Slightly cooked spinach also goes amazingly well with this.
