Recipe: Vegan One-Pot Pasta Primavera


  • 8 oz (about 2 cups) whole wheat or gluten-free pasta
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • ONE cup sliced bell peppers (assorted colors)
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup baby spinach or kale
  • ONE small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or other plant-based milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red pepper flakes (optional, for heat)
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish


  1. In a large pot, combine the pasta, cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, sliced bell peppers, zucchini, baby spinach or kale, red onion, and minced garlic.
  2. Pour in the vegetable broth and unsweetened almond milk. The liquid should cover the ingredients by about an inch.
  3. Add the nutritional yeast, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. If you like a bit of heat, you can also add red pepper flakes at this stage.
  4. Place the pot over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  5. Once the mixture is boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and let it simmer, uncovered, for about 10-12 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking and to prevent the pasta from sticking together.
  6. Keep simmering until the pasta is cooked al dente and the vegetables are tender.
  7. Taste the dish and adjust the seasoning if necessary, adding more salt, pepper, or herbs as desired.
  8. Once the pasta is cooked to your liking, remove the pot from the heat.
  9. Serve the Vegan One-Pot Pasta Primavera hot, garnished with fresh basil leaves.
