Carbonara – there are few dishes so comforting, rich and naughty as this. In Japan, whenever I have had too much asian cuisine and craving something European, I go to a lovely “Italian” restaurant called Pronto and have a cheeky carbonara. Except, I am in Japan, so of course it’s not actually spaghetti, they have used a chewy udon noodle instead but the creamy cheesy sauce it comes with I was pleasantly surprised and have always made my carbonara with udon since.
This is a Miso Tasty twist on the carbonara of course, with mashed tofu and miso paste as the basis of the sauce, it is creamy and deeply rich at the same time. It takes just 10 minutes to make and has become my quick-go to working from home lunch.
