Creamy Vegan Carbonara with Bacon

Updated: Dec 8, 2019


Creamy vegan carbonara? Yes please.

This creation actually reminds me of my childhood. Growing up I’d always see my mom cooking up a creamy carbonara, which my sister really loved. I can’t say I was the biggest fan of this super creamy pasta dish but I do like having creamy pasta every now and then!

The best part? This creamy carbonara is completely vegan and made with really simple ingredients. I can say it’s high in protein too!

So yes, get your pots ready and boil some water because it’s time to boil some spaghetti! Oh and get your blenders ready too because you’ll need them to create this creamy sauce!

You can find the full recipe below. Enjoy!
