"The great thing about the viral baked feta pasta recipe is that it can easily be adapted to fit any diet. Here's how to make it the vegan way."

Some people assume vegans eat nothing but leaves. But in actuality, a vegan or plant-based diet features a variety of foods far beyond fruit and veggies. That includes mouth-watering dishes like baked feta pasta—the TikTok trend that’s quite literally taken over the world.

The viral pasta recipe originated in Finland in 2019 after Jenni Häyrinen, a food blogger, shared her “Uunifetapasta” recipe on Instagram. The dish got the attention of millions, causing feta to sell out in local stores. It even took the prize for Finland’s 2019 phenomenon of the year. Naturally, the United States wanted to meet this global superstar, and there are now thousands of recreations on TikTok and Instagram.

Now you may be wondering: How is it possible to make a vegan baked feta pasta recipe? Easy. New vegan products seem to be hitting grocery stores by the day, and one of those items is dairy-free feta. Since all of the other ingredients are naturally vegan, that single swap will allow you to make a version that’s just as creamy and delicious.

Want to try vegan baked feta pasta for yourself? Here’s exactly how to make it.
