This amazing Roasted Garlic Carbonara Sauce is super creamy, entirely vegan and gluten free. It takes just 4 ingredients and will be a must make for everyone.



  • 7 oz oat cream or coconut creamer, unsweetened
  • 5 cloves garlic peeled and finely chopped 
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast 
  • 1 tsp black salt (kala namak) 
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke (optional) 
  • pepper to taste 


  1. First heat some oil, cacao butter or vegetable broth for oil free cooking. Fry the garlic for around 3 minutes, then add all the other ingredients to that pan cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  2. Note: If your cream is a bit thin, adjust with tapioca starch until the sauce thickens. My cream was really thick so no need for extra starch. But it may depend on brand and cream.
  3. Serve over pasta or whatever you like and enjoy!
