- Firstly, mix the golden syrup, soy sauce, and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and add the chopped chestnut mushrooms and mix until they are all coated, then set this aside.
- Next, chop the garlic and onions.
- Now, cook the onions in a pan until they are translucent, and then add the garlic and mushrooms – with the sauce they have been sitting in – to the pan. Cover and cook this for 10 minutes over a medium heat, mixing occasionally.
- While this is cooking, put the tagliatelle in a saucepan and cook.
- After the 10 minutes has elapsed, add the vegan soft cheese, salt, pepper, and soya milk to the mushroom sauce and cook for a further 3 – 5 minutes over a medium heat, mixing occasionally.
- Now, assemble the dish. Mix through some torn basil and then either mix the cooked pasta and sauce together, or just add the sauce on top – whichever you prefer.
- As with most dishes, add as little or as much salt and pepper as suits you, or no salt at all if you prefer.
- TOP TIP: I highly recommend adding some Tofurky bacon to this dish; just add to the dish when you add the mushrooms.
