I planned on making spaghetti muffins for ages. New Year’s Eve sounded like the perfect opportunity to put the plan into action and make some as a snack.

I wanted to make spaghetti not with a tomato sauce, but with a creamy sauce. I thought about using an omelette filling like with my broccoli cake. That would have been great, too. But I wanted it creamier. So it was decided pretty quickly that it’s going to be spaghetti carbonara muffins.

Making a vegan carbonara is easy. I make it form soy cream, smoked tofu and add a pinch of kala namak for that eggy taste.

I used only a little sauce, because spaghetti muffins can get mushy easily. But I wanted loose spaghetti, firm to the bite with a nice taste. So if you want your muffins more compact and firmer, I recommend you raise the amount of liquids to one and a half times.

And now go right ahead and have fun with the recipe!

If you want the muffins firmer, increase the amount of liquids to one and a half times. You can buy kala namak online.

    Die Spaghetti-Nester sind so lecker. Meine Tochter hat sie sich zum letzten Geburtstag statt Torte gewünscht. ?
    Wir machen sie zu jedem Buffet und alle Gäste sind immer sehr begeistert. Danke für das Rezept.

    Du schreibst, man sollte di Spagetti in der Muffinform auskühlen lassen und dann erst herausnehmen. Wir möchten gerne die Nudelnester warm essen. Sollte ich Sie in der Mikrowelle erhitzen?

      Liebe Kerstin,
      so würde ich es machen. Wenn du sie nicht in der Form abkühlen lässt, zerfallen sie dir beim herausnehmen.
      Liebe Grüße
