Carluccio’s – Various Locations

Cheesed off at the lack of vegan pasta dishes? 🧀 Enter @carluccios {ad}⁣⁣⁣
The team has created a host of new vegan dishes (lots available once veganuary is over) and this is the first time (I *think*) London has seen a veegs gorgonzola dish 👀⁣⁣⁣
Until 11th Feb, here’s what you can feast on:⁣⁣⁣

🌱⁣Tortelloni Vegano w/ blue cheese & spinach, spinach sauce, semi-dried tomato pesto & walnuts⁣ ⁣⁣
💭⁣ This has a subtle cheesy flavour but would’ve loved more to make it stronger. Pasta is cooked to perfection. Love the hints of pesto but wanted more of that too. Not the boldest sauce but I LOVE spinach so it did it for me⁣⁣⁣
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

🏆Fave dish⁣⁣

🌱⁣Veganese in rosemary breadcrumbs w/ charred tenderstem, sweet & sour peppers, raisins, flaked almonds, vegan mayo⁣⁣⁣
💭⁣ This tasted like sausage – nice flavour! Bit less firm than meat but it worked. The rosemary flavour really stands out!⁣
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

🌱⁣Gnocchi e Zucca w/ butternut squash & sage pesto, crispy sage & pumpkin seeds⁣⁣⁣
💭⁣ The flavours are nice but a little subtle. Would’ve liked a touch of salt to bring them out! Gnocchi is cooked v well. Sage is the standout – lovely flavour and adds crunch. Would’ve loved more of it. Sauce is a nice consistency!⁣⁣⁣
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

🏆Fave dish⁣⁣

🌱⁣Panelle di Ceci – Pam fried chickpea fritters⁣
💭⁣ Texture is great and flavours are lovely – some saltiness from the capers and a beaut pesto, but it’s a little oily for me⁣⁣⁣
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? No⁣⁣⁣

🌱⁣Pear & polenta cake w/ raspberry coulis⁣⁣⁣
💭⁣ This is moist & fluffy. Flavours are delish and sharp coulis adds a nice contrast. Loved the big chunks of pear in the middle! Almonds work too⁣⁣⁣
