Creamy dairy-free pasta dish with home- grown oyster mushrooms!

Yesterday evening, I invented this lovely Dairy-free creamy pasta dish! I used home-grown oyster mushrooms in here. A while ago, my husband bought me a DIY package with spawn of oyster mushrooms in it. Home-grown makes all the difference in flavor! So delicious, so good, so meaty-like! πŸ™‚Β How I grew them, I tell you all later in a separate post! The first time, we had 85 gr & now, yesterday evening , I had 125 gr! Not bad, hey?



These sort are blue oyster mushrooms! They look cool, right? Now, on to the lovely pasta dish!

Recipe: For 5 persons


350 gr spelt penne ( 4 cups)

120 gr oyster mushrooms, I used home-grown, cleaned & cut up into larger pieces ( 2 full cups, measured when cut up )

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely chopped

1 big leek, (150 gr) well rinsed, cleaned, pad dry on a towel, cut up into smaller pieces ( 2 cups, measured when chopped)

355 gr brown mushrooms, cleaned, cut up into smaller pieces (4 cups, measured when cut up )

200 gr smoked bacon pieces

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

dairy-free baking margarine ( because I must eat lactose-free)

black pepper

Maldon sea salt

1 packet of 250 ml soy cream (1 cup )


1. Take a large cooking pot & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add some drizzles of olive oil & swirl around the pot. Add leek & garlic & fry for a few minutes. Add some grins of black pepper & a pinch or two of sea salt. I added a splash of hot water to the pot & instantly put the lid on. This way the leek will steam a bit & is ready quicker! Set aside.

2. Now, in a large non-stick pan & in 2 batches, add some olive oil & a few knobs of baking margarine. When hot, add chopped brown mushrooms & fry until browned on both sides & cooked through. Lower your heat if you need to. At the end, add some grins of black pepper & a pinch of sea salt. Taste. They have to taste juicy & fab! Add them to the same pot with leek & garlic. Repeat this process with the rest of the brown mushrooms. After that is done, heat up the same pan on medium. Add smoked bacon pieces, but NO OIL! Fry until browned, crispy & cooked through on all sides. Place double kitchen paper on a clean plate & pour your smoked bacon pieces on it. With double kitchen paper, dip of the excess of fat. Add this to pot with mushrooms-garlic-leek & stir through. In the meantime, cook your penne according to your packet instructions. Drain. Use the same cooking pot & heat up on medium. Pour your soy cream in it & add some black pepper & some sea salt. Stir continuously & heat up.


Reduce it a bit & pour 1/2 of it through your veggies-smoked bacon mix. Heat up again & add cooked drained pasta. Add more soy cream, until you reach a creamy pasta. I had a leftover soy cream. It will look something like this:


Now, use same frying pan as before, add some olive oil & some knobs of baking margarine, but not too much! When hot, add chopped oyster mushrooms & pan fry them until browned & cooked through. Finally, add some seasoning. Place your cooked pasta mix to lovely clean white pasta bowls & top, evenly divided, of course, your browned oyster mushroom pieces. Enjoy with a loved one! πŸ™‚ MMM,…

  1. Homegrown oyster mushrooms!!! wow the pasta must have tasted divine!

  2. Hello Sophie,
    Your dish is very creative. It all looks very tasteful and delicious.

  3. Seriously? homegrown. What a lovely idea. Straight to the pot. Looks delicious. Best of 2015!

  4. Congrats on growing your own mushrooms! I’m super-impressed. And you’ve showcased them beautifully with this lovely pasta xx

  5. Sophie how fantastic. Isn’t growing your own the best πŸ™‚ (note to self, plant something)! I’ve never yet grown mushrooms but maybe after seeing these I will give it a try. Just seeing the mushrooms in the pan makes me want to cook some for breakfast! Yummy creamy DF pasta dish πŸ™‚

  6. Your pasta sounds great. I made a similar dish last night Sophie, only I used mushroom raviolis. Wish I had your lovely oyster mushrooms…I bought mine and they are expensive. πŸ™‚

  7. Those mushrooms are amazing!! I look forward to seeing your post about how you grew them. What a great vegetarian pasta dish!!

    1. Yes, Koko but it is not vegetarian there is smoked bacon in here! You can make it vegan by using tempeh bacon in here! πŸ˜‰ x

  8. Talk about luxury- Fancy mushrooms are one of my favorite indulgences, and one that I can rarely afford. I should really start growing my own to save on the costs! I’ve tried this kit before and enjoyed it, too.

  9. I am so impressed that you grew your own mushrooms! I can’t wait to read about how you grew them. Aren’t creamy mushrooms and pasta just the best combination?

    Thanks for your comments on my blog recently, too. (I just published them. They were stuck in my spam filter. Sorry about that.)

    1. Oki doki, no problem, Claire! You can find many vegan recipes also here on my blog, under category vegan! 267 recipes , okey?

  10. yesterday evening, I made this lovely dinner but with bought oyster mushrooms! This was a perfect tasty pasta dinner, easy peasy! Xxx

    1. I will explain that later in a separate post, because we must still grown mushrooms on the other side of the package! xxx No, very easy though! xxx

  11. Was at the markets on the week and picked up a variety of mushrooms, will totes give your recipe a go this week. Thanks Sophie. πŸ™‚
