Mushroom Spaghetti

This is my post number 100 and to celebrate it I came up with this deliciously rich and yummy pasta!!!
It has been a real pleasure to create new recipes and share them with you. I hope my journey through veganism and vegan food has helped some of you out there.
To the ones who don't know me, I'm a Brazilian who live and love London and my journey to the light (lol) begun 16 years ago when I became a vegetarian and that I stayed until the beginning of 2012. Through the past 5 years I started cutting animal products from my life bit by bit and at some point it felt as if I was crossing a bridge and stopped halfway through where I felt comfortable. One day after watching the "I'm vegan" video with Dr Gary Francione, I felt like a complete fake and realised that if I was really true with everything I wanted for animals and the planet that becoming a vegan was the only way forward and that was liberating. I am healthier than I ever been and really happy with my decision. It really helped the fact that Neni (my husband) decided to go vegan with me.
Since then I started a with this blog, I am doing a Vegetarian & Vegan Nutrition Consultant Course and have just started giving cookery classes. It is just the beginning but for me a better one!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you fell like it, share your story with me! :)
