Pasta Agile

This Carbonara is a favourite in the ZENB team. It is the quickest possible carbonara and entirely plant based and gluten free! The secret here is a smoky sesame sauce which is entirely raw - made by mixing tahini with water and seasonings and then drenching the pasta in the sauce. 

Like all of our recipes we prioritize whole vegetables so here there are extra greens and mushrooms to make it even more interesting. Last but not least the most moorish coconut topping to add an element of crunch! This smoky coconut is also a great snack and salad topping you can enjoy in many different dishes.
