12 Minute Mushroom Spaghetti Carbonara

Okay guys, how could i do these comfort pasta dishes without one of my favourites! Carbonara! So good and full of flavour, and the smell is exactly that of a carbonara, cheesy, garlic and that slightly smokey scent form the "bacon" mushrooms. 

Lets dive into what your going to need, really simple ingredients and quick just how i like my cooking!


serves 2 

160-200g pasta depending on how hungry you are 

75g of shiitake mushrooms 
2tsp cornflour 
1/2tsp smoked paprika 
1tsp oil 

1 small white onion finely chopped 
1/2 packet of silken tofu 
1/2 cup veggie stock 
1 and 1/2 tbs nutritional yeast 
1 large clove of garlic 
pinch of nutmeg 

First off get your pasta on to boil. Then place a frying pan over medium heat the oil up and coat the mushroom in the cornflour and paprika. Fry in the oil for 8 minutes until crispy, while they are frying add in the onion at one side of the pan and give it the remaining 3 minutes with the mushrooms. 

Remove mushrooms and place on kitchen paper. While they are frying blend, garlic, veggie stock, silken tofu and nutritional yeast. Add in pinch of nutmeg and salt and black pepper to taste. Add sauce to pan and drain pasta (mine only takes 8 minutes) cook pasta in sauce for remaining 4 minutes, use 2 spoons to coat the pasta in the sauce. You can add in a few mushrooms to the sauce but they will go un crispy in the sauce. Serve with crispy mushrooms on top. 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, keep tagging me in the recreations! i love seeing them! 

Until next time, Helen xx
