img_8105Are you vegan and did you used to like pasta carbonara? Or do you want to make something nice for an omni friend or family member? A vegan pasta carbonara: Veganara! This is definitely a good comfort food, but also very nice to make when you have company over. I’m sure they’ll like this! Did I mention that it’s also super easy to make? You can basically make this within 10 minutes. As you can easily prepare the sauce in the time the pasta is cooking. You don’t even need that many ingredients to make this fantastic plate of food. For the bacon style pieces I used the ones from Vivera. They have new bacon pieces now and they are amazing. Definitely worth a try!


Serves: 2-3 

-200 gr pappardelle (or spaghetti)
-1 tsp olive oil

-2 cloves garlic (minced)
-1 cup vegan bacon (I used Vivera)

-1/3 cup vegan cream (I used Oatly)
-3 tbs vegan cream cheese
-2 tbs nutritional yeast
-1 tbs fresh parsley (chopped)
-grounded pepper (to taste)

-Cook the pappardelle/spaghetti as described on the package.
-Fry the garlic in the olive oil for just 1 minute.
-Then add the vegan bacon and fry for 2-3 minutes on high heat.
-Add the parsley and fry for just half a minute.
-Lower the heat to a minimum and mix in the cream, the cream cheese and the nutritional yeast. If everything is mixed well, switch off the heat source.
-Add the pasta to the sauce and give it a good mix.
-Add pepper to taste and sprinkle some extra parsley on top.
