I loveeee a good pasta dish, and all my time favorite before going veggie was Carbonara. 

The garlic and creamy taste really stuck with me. 
So I had to find a way to enjoy it and use a recipe that is a great match for the original. 
The tricky aspect for me was finding an alternative texture for the bacon bits. I tried Tofu which was ok but the texture just isn’t consistent. 
I ended up using Sgaia vegan mheat's streaky rashers which are flavored and textured just right for a Carbonara. 

Here’s the recipe I found: 

60g cashew nuts 
1/2 cup of water 
1 tbsp olive oil 
2 cloves of garlic 
Pinch of salt and pepper 
Blitz and set aside. 

I lightly fried off the rashers when cubed, in coconut oil then added the Vegan pasta into the pan. Mix the sauce into the pan and heat. 

Boom it’s a real treat, texture is great and if you have used fresh garlic it it will smell amazing. 

Excited for you too all try it.
