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 :)


Just made this, but with a vegan bacon and a chunk of vegan cheese instead of the yeast flakes. The cashews work so well, really creamy. It would never have occurred to me to make something like this. Thanks, it made a nice change.

  • 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!
