Mushroom & spinach  carbonara

A tasty vegan alternative to a classic pasta dish.

Serves 2


  • 250 g tagliatelle
  • Olive oil
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 80g chestnut mushrooms (diced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • 200ml soy cream
  • 50g vegan cheese (grated)
  • salt & pepper
  • Large handful of spinach leaves


Put the tagliatelle on to cook, as per the packet instructions.

Heat some olive oil in a pan and add the onions, mushrooms & garlic. Fry on a low heat for about 5 minutes, until the onions are soft.

Add the parsley, cream and cheese and stir on a low heat, until the cheese is melted and the sauce is thickening.

Drain the pasta and, off the heat, stir in the cream sauce. Season with a little salt & pepper and stir in the spinach leave.
Serve immediately.
