Vegan truffle pasta

Are truffles even vegan? Yup! You just need to make sure they were grown in a plantation. The easiest vegan truffle pasta recipe - yet so tasty!

This vegan truffle pasta is very, very simple and crazy delicious.

This summer I went to Istria, the region in Croatia well known for it's amazing olive oil and truffles. I decided I will develop a great truffle pasta recipe, but as they are so expensive, I had a very limited budged. The products I used were, I guess, not the best and my dreams for a perfect truffle pasta were ruined. That is when, sulking it did not work, I just poured some truffle olive oil over some leftover pasta, added salt, pepper and nutritional yeast and... I was stoked! It's 100 % not a proper, super expensive version of truffle pasta you will get if prepared by a professional truffle chef, but I am actually very into this simple recipe. It tastes well, it's really easy and quick and well. It does not break the bank!

Make sure you check the source of truffles & truffle products before you buy them - most of them are from plantations, but some brands use dogs and pigs to find wild truffles, and that's not ok. Animals are often mistreated, and even if they were not - remember: animals are not here to serve us so using them in any way is unethical. The truffles from plantations might be less flavorful, but they are at least ethical, and no ones taste buds are worth the suffering of others.

Make sure you also try pesto pasta & fresh tomato pasta.

Makes: 2 servings                 Time: 10-15

 

Ingredients:

Pasta:
200 g
gluten-free or regular pasta
a big pinch of salt
water

30 ml (30 g/2 Tbsp) vegan truffle olive oil
1½ g (½ tsp) freshly grounded pepper
15 g (3 Tbsp)
nutritional yeast
a few pinches
of salt

Toppings:
nutritional yeast
cherry tomatoes (optional)

Instructions:

1. Start by cooking the pasta.

2. Once it's cooked and drained we add vegan truffle olive oil, freshly grounded pepper and pinch or two of salt. Give it a mix.

3. In the end add nutritional yeast and mix once more. Enjoy immediately!

Notes and tips:

1. Make sure that the truffles were grown in plantations, and that the brand is not using animals to find the truffles.
2. The pasta actually tastes best when the pasta is first cooled down (you can just pout cold water over it after draining and then add all the ingredients). No idea why I prefer it that way, but there you go! Also, it’s a great to-go lunch!
3. Oil is not a health food, so, use it in moderation. This recipe in general is not the most nutritious, so do not make it your staple.
