Creamy Vegan One Pot Pasta now that is something I can get behind! This dish also comes together in under 30 minutes with less than 10-ingredients. The perfect quick and easy dinner! 

I love a good pasta dish and a creamy one is even better in my eyes. When you go vegan creamy is something that gets a little harder to achieve. This recipe uses the starch from the noodle as a thickening agent. 

Allowing you to make this in One Pot, less clean up is always a win. I don’t know about you but I love a good one pot meal. They require minimal work and clean up making it a perfect weeknight option. 

Check out my video below as well to see how easy this comes together! 

Ingredient Notes:

  • Linguini – I like to find whole wheat option if I can. You could also use a thick fettuccini noodle but I wouldn’t recommend anything much thinner. You need the startch to thicken this sauce. 
  • Almond Milk – Any plant milk will work but you will want an unsweetened unflavored option. 
  • Vegetable Broth – Look for one with low sodium. 
  • Shallot – This is a nice mild and slightly sweet onion. You can use yellow or white if you would like but shallot has a great flavor for this recipe. 
  • Garlic – Use fresh and mince it fine or use a garlic press. 
  • Spinach – I used baby spinach.
  • Cherry Tomatoes – Grape will work a well but look for a deep red as those have the most flavor. 
  • Olive Oil – Any neutral oil will work Olive Oil just happens to be what I use. 
  • Salt & Pepper – I use Sea Salt and Fresh Cracked Black Pepper.

Ingredients
 

  • 8 oz. linguini
  • 2 cups unsweetened unflavored almond milk
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 4 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Dice shallot and mince garlic.
  • In a large skillet or pot add olive oil and bring to medium heat.
  • Add garlic and shallots and sauté until tender.
  • Add almond milk and vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.
  • Add linguini and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add cherry tomatoes and simmer another 10 minutes. You want your tomatoes to "pop" you can help them along with a fork or spoon if needed.
  • Add spinach and cook until spinach wilts.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • I specify large garlic cloves in this recipe as I have noticed a difference in flavor when using smaller cloves. You will have a much more flavorful dish with more garlic! If you have smaller cloves I would recommend using 5 cloves of garlic.
  • I do not recommend using a thinner cut noodle for this dish as the starch from the noodles help to thicken the sauce.
