Fast & easy Vegan Spaghetti Carbonara (dairy free) (No Eggs)

This recipe was a real winner & so simple to make, tasted delicious. My son really likes it when I veganise a tradional recipe that’s one of his favourites. (Also one of the least vegan dishes you could think of!) The sauce was creamy & cheesey and perfect with the salty smoky chewy bites.

You can adapt and do with or without the mushrooms & the peas are something I like to add as they compliment the smoky ‘bacon’. Also I used to try to sneak vegetables into recipes – my son pointed out that I shouldn’t have to do that now as everything he eats is plant based anyway 😂


    200 g mushrooms (optional)
    50 g frozen peas (optional)
    1 tbsp olive oil
    150 g Vegan ‘bacon’ (we used Vivera plant bacon pieces)
    2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
    1 garlic clove crushed
    1 tsp Garlic Salt
    Salt & pepper to season
    200 ml Vegan Double Cream (we used Elmlea)
    Chopped Parsley
    Handful of Grated Vegan cheese (we used Violife)
    200 g / 7 oz spaghetti
Vegan Plant Bacon

    Cook the spaghetti- according to pack instructions.
    Heat the oil in a big frying pan.
    Add the crushed garlic & garlic salt. Stir and fry for a minute.
    Add the vegan bacon & sauté for 3 minutes.
    Add the frozen peas & fry for 2/3 minutes.
    Stir in the nutritional yeast flakes (this gives it the slightly eggy flavour.
    Add the plant vegan double cream & simmer & stir well for 2 / 3 minutes until it’s a consistency not too thin.
    Serve immediately over the spaghetti.
    Top with chopped Parsley & the grated vegan cheese. (We like the Violife as seems to melt better than other vegan cheese we’ve tried.
