I love carbonara but so afraid of the fatty cream. Your vegan version looks so good as always. I am gonna try it And thank you for the facts and history behind it all. I always enjoy reading them. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for your comment Nicola! I really hope you make this - yea, it's a great alternative to the traditional style with heavy cream!

Interesting twist on a classic - sounds pretty good!! Yummy carbonara flavor with none of the guilt! :)

I just made this for tonight's dinner. It was exceptional and delicious. So creamy, hard to believe it was made with zero animal products. Thank you Andrea. I used fettucine instead of spaghetti as that's what I had. And bacon seitan from Whole Foods as I couldn't find ham. Very easy and quick, amazing how quick it was. Great dinner!

Thank you so much for letting me know Elizabeth! I am sooo happy that this recipe was a winner for you. I agree, it really is hard to believe there are no animal products hey? Shows how we don't need them! :)


I definitely want to try to make this, I love creamy pastas!

I think I'm making this again at the weekend, Angie! Do let me know what you think you try it out :)


Stehe dem ganzen doch etwas skeptisch gegenüber, aber ich werd es ausprobieren.


It looks really tasty. I'll definitely try it :)

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
