Creamy Tomato, Garlic & Spinach Linguine

Opting for plant-based doesn’t mean having to let go of creamy, indulgent meals… noooo-sirrrrr-eeeee. And when it comes to creamy indulgent meals, nothing quite matches the comforting sight, smell and taste of a bowl of pasta. This super simple dish is proof that vegans can also enjoy those amazing flavours in your own home, even after a long, crazy day. 

Creamy, garlic-y, rich and delicious. Paired with a crisp glass of white wine, this recipe is the perfect year-round comfort food.
