Vegan Carbonara

This is a vegan twist on a classic dish. I highly recommend using the vivera bacon pieces over any other brands as the flavour works perfectly!

Serves: 3


  • 200g wholewheat pasta
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pack of vivavivera bacon pieces
  • 150ml vegan cream
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 handful of grated vegan cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Begin by cooking the pasta according to packet instructions.
  2. To defrost the peas, pour over boiling water and set aside
  3. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes, stirring regularly
  4. Add in the bacon pieces and turn up the heat slightly. Fry for a further 5 minutes
  5. Add the peas, vegan cream and nutritional yeast. Bring to a boil then lower the temperature and stir in the pasta. Add the cheese and stir through until melted. Add lots of black pepper and enjoy!
