Dairy free pasta carbonara?
I know, I know... part of the deliciousness of this dish is the butter and parmesan cheese! But can I substitute anything for the butter and cheese?
I LOVE this dish, but for the time being, I can't have anything made from cow's milk. What if I substituted some kind of oil for the butter an omitted the cheese? Blasphemy? I am really craving this dish....
I usually make this recipe and it's DIVINE:
I don't use butter or Parmesan cheese in Carbonara. Just bacon, the bacon drippings, eggs, black pepper, and pasta.
Like others have pointed out, there's generally no butter or parm in carbonara.
There are good non-cow subs for many cheeses. I cook for someone who is very allergic to cow. Manchego, pecorino are the two most common.
There is also goat butter and goat and sheep yogurt.
