Pasta Recipes Vegan
I’ve never had a bad day that couldn’t be fixed with pasta. Period. From pasta salads to Mac n Cheese, this hearty carb is central to so many of my favorite meals.
In this post, I’m going to spread the love with my go-to vegan pasta and simple plant-based sauces. Let’s get started!
When it comes to pasta recipes, pesto is a must-have. The Plant Riot’s quick and simple basil pesto recipe is 100% plant-based and tastes awesome with pasta, on toast, or even served as a dip.
Pasta + enchilada sauce = a delicious collaboration! This World of Vegan recipe is cheesy, saucy, and super flavorful. Oh, and because it’s a one-pot recipe, you’re saving on washing up. Score!
Plantifully Based brings us another fantastic fusion recipe with their Mexican street corn pasta salad. Salty, tangy, and sweet, the flavors capture the essence of the classic Mexican dish, with the addition of tender macaroni.
Veggiekins keeps their recipes simple, like this quick and delicious Caprese salad. Bursting with fresh basil and tomato, this recipe is a perfect summer dish for those on vegan and gluten-free diets.
Just because you’re on a plant-based diet doesn’t mean you can’t have Mac n Cheese! This veggie pasta recipe’s easy to follow and combines a cheesy, creamy sauce with roasted colorful beets.
Next on our list is a delightfully creamy hummus pasta from World of Vegan. Topped with sweet and tangy sun-dried tomatoes, this salad is perfect for a summer picnic.
Quick, simple, and budget-friendly this summer pasta salad from Plant Based on a Budget ticks all the boxes. Load your salad bowl with fresh veggies and keep the leftovers in the fridge for a tasty make-ahead meal.
Two Spoons lightens up the carb-fest with this nutritious lemon salad. Light, fresh, and herby, this salad would make a fabulous lunch or BBQ side dish.
This pasta recipe from Veggiekins looks and tastes super fancy, but is actually simple to make. Oyster mushrooms are the secret to making plant-based scallops and topped with lots of garlic and vegan butter, they taste even better than the original.
