Baked feta pasta has taken over the internet. It’s so popular that Finland actually ran out of feta cheese! The creamy and flavorful dish is quite simple to make, but tastes like it’s from a five-star restaurant. Plus, it’s super easy to veganize! If you’re vegan or dairy-free, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy this trend too.

There are so many innovative vegan recipes for baked feta pasta that use dairy-free alternatives to feta cheese and we’ve scoured the internet to find some of the best! From a classic feta pasta that uses store-bought plant-based feta, to more a unique creation that uses chocolate and bananas, there’s something for everyone on this list!

Like, Veggiekins, most vegan feta pasta makers are using Violife’s vegan feta. It’s pretty to easy to find and super creamy! There’s also another version by @okrikky that uses Follow Your Heart vegan feta crumbles and one by This Savory Vegan that uses Miyokos classic chive vegan cheese. There are so many ways to go and so many dairy-free cheeses to try!

This vegan baked feta mac and cheese is so good that it got the attention of Lizzo, who also made her own veg feta pasta recently. The base for this feta uses tofu, cashews, and a blend of seasonings. If you’re feeling something a bit more creative, you should also check out @plantyou‘s vegan baked feta mac and cheese!
