The Most Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara

carbonara (2)

לפני שהייתי טבעוני, I never tried pasta carbonara. I find that odd since it has four ingredients I loved: פסטה, ביצה, bacon and cheese. But somehow this dish fell under my radar.

I know about it mostly from watching cooking shows on TV. It’s Rachael Ray’s husband’s favorite dish, the first dish she ever cooked for him, the dish she makes him every year on his birthday, and since I am an RR fan and want to be the vegan Rachael Ray, all this information has been burned into my brain. 🙂

So when I wanted to make a vegan version of pasta carbonara, I searched all the recipes out there. They all seemed to replace the eggs with something creamy like tofu or cashew cream. The problem with that is authentic carbonara does not have cream. The sauce is simply eggs and cheese. All the recipes I saw sounded more like Alfredo and that’s not carbonara. I wanted to make it as authentic as possible.

Enter the amazing creations from בצע את הלב שלך and my authentic vegan carbonara was no longer a dream. FYH sent me some of their new, incredible VeganEgg. It’s a new whole egg replacer and that makes me so happy.

אתה רואה, when I started my vegan journey, I thought it would be chicken I couldn’t live without but eggs were actually the last food I gave up. Not only did I use them in cooking a lot but I loved scrambled eggs and omelets. Although I love tofu scrambles and chickpea omelets, I still miss eggs – even 7 שנים מאוחר יותר.

With Follow Your Heart VeganEgg, you must mix the powder with cold water and you have a bowl of whisked vegan eggs.

You can scramble them, make omelets with them and cook with them. They look just like eggs but more importantly, they taste exactly like eggs!

Giving up cheese wasn’t a really big deal for me except for two cheeses I ate all the time: mozzarella and parmesan. Those were my favorites and while there are really good vegan products out there, they aren’t exact. I still miss those cheeses. But now Follow Your Heart has come out with a line of vegan parmesan. שלהם Parmesan-style cheese comes in shreds and grated cheese. FYH generously sent me some of the shreds. One taste and I thought I was eating dairy cheese. It’s that good! The Italian girl in me is very happy!

Now I had what I needed to make authentic, yet vegan, carbonara. The recipe also calls for bacon and I cooked up some smoked tofu but you can use whatever brand you like. Which vegan bacon you use is probably going to be the difference of whether your dish is gluten-free or not. Everything else in this recipe is gluten-free.

Pasta Carbonara is one of the easiest, quickest pasta dishes you can make. Now I know why it’s often eaten as a late-night meal. All you have to do is cook the pasta, saute some onions and garlic, crisp up the vegan bacon and pour the egg-cheese mixture down on top. Boom! You’re done.

Once the cheesy egg mixture poured over the hot pasta and I stirred, it started to cook and coat the pasta with a luxurious sauce that tasted….אגי. Creamy and eggy. There’s no need to add cream to this dish. It doesn’t really belong there and believe me, you don’t want to cover that delicious eggy taste.

The vegan bacon adds a crispy texture to the dish. It’s decadent, rich but not overloaded with cheese or anything too creamy. It’s just eggy, cheesy goodness.

My Authentic Vegan Pasta Carbonara was a big hit and it will definitely go into the rotation of favorite dinners. I can’t wait to try all the other parmesan products from Follow Your Heart – I’m especially looking forward to the block so I can grate my own cheese on top of pasta. And I’m so grateful that FYH gave me back eggs. If this product had existed 7 1/2 לפני שנים, I would have gone vegan that much sooner. תהנה!

carbonara (28) תודה, בצע את הלב שלך, for the amazing vegan eggs and cheese.

    What brand of vegan bacon is that?

      למעשה, it’s smoked tofu that I sliced really thin and pan-fried. Tastes just like veggie bacon! xoxo
