vegan pasta


  • 12 oz spaghetti (gluten free if preferred)
  • 4 tablespoons mild (quality) olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups non-dairy cream (I used soya)
  • 1/2 cup of flour (gluten-free if preferred)
  • water/dash of non dairy milk
  • squeeze of lemon lemon juice
  • a packet of vegan ham (we like Quorn), sliced lengthways
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Himalyan pink salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Boil the spaghetti in boiling water with a drop of oil in the pan and a little salt. Cook as per the packet ingredients.

In a medium sized pan, fry the onion and garlic in the oil until golden. Add the vegan cream and flour, whisking to prevent lumps. Add non dairy milk/ water if the sauce becomes too thick. Squeeze the lemon and add the vegam ham. Season with nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley.
