Dietary Recipe Notes:

About the Recipe:
For the dairy free pasta sauce the cauliflower and coconut milk make this a creamy delight. Bonus nutrition points for the vegetables too.
For the protein component to the recipe I used Inglewood Organic Chicken Sausages. They paired so perfectly with the sauce!
Please make sure you choose certified organic sausages so you are avoiding harsh preservatives commonly used in sausages. Namely, common preservatives you will find in non-organic sausages include sulphates/ sulphites/ 220-228.
For the pasta gluten free mung bean pasta which is higher in fibre and protein than other gluten free pastas that are typically quite starchy. You can use whatever is your favourite pasta but I love to use pulse or bean pastas for their nutritional quality.
The Difference Between Organic vs Certified Organic
I’ve partnered with Australian Organic to bring you this recipe using certified organic ingredients. September is Australian Organic Awareness month dedicated to help you better understand the term organic and create consumer awareness on making the best choice for quality organic products.
In Australia there is currently no domestic regulation around the term ‘organic’ meaning that some products labelled organic may not be what they say they are (for example, only a % of ingredients are actually organic).
So how do you know if something is certified organic to know you are buying an authentic organic product? Look for the certification marks, the Australian Organic BUD logo!
When something is ‘Certified’ Organic vs organic to obtain the Australian Organic BUD logo the product/brand/business has been through extensive testing and adhered to strict guidelines so that you can ensure the product is:
- Free from synthetic chemicals
- Sustainable & regenerative farming used
- Free range & not tested on animals
- No GMO’s
Now for the recipe! I hope you and your family love this one as much as mine do!
