Making Vegan Pasta

Making vegan pasta is a simple and delicious alternative to traditional pasta. Here’s a basic recipe for vegan pasta:


  • 8 ounces (about 227 grams) of your favorite pasta (check ingredients to ensure it’s vegan)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes or 2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for heat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs, such as basil or parsley, for garnish


  1. Cook the Pasta:
    • Boil a large pot of salted water.
    • Add the pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente.
    • Drain the pasta and set it aside.
  2. Prepare the Sauce:
    • In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Be careful not to burn it.
  3. Add Tomatoes:
    • If using canned tomatoes, add them to the pan (with their juice). If using fresh tomatoes, add the chopped tomatoes.
    • Stir in the red pepper flakes (if using) and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Simmer:
    • Bring the tomato mixture to a simmer and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes. This helps the flavors meld and the sauce thicken.
  5. Combine with Pasta:
    • Once the sauce has simmered, add the cooked pasta to the pan.
    • Toss the pasta in the sauce until well coated.
  6. Serve:
    • Transfer the vegan pasta to serving plates or bowls.
    • Garnish with fresh herbs, such as basil or parsley.

Feel free to customize this basic recipe by adding vegetables, mushrooms, or protein alternatives like tofu or plant-based meat substitutes. Adjust the seasonings to your taste, and enjoy your delicious vegan pasta!
