LEMON ONE POT PASTA

This vegan Lemon One Pot Pasta is so easy to make and is ready in about 15 minutes.  Leeks, peas, spinach, and chickpeas are added to round out this healthy meal!

 I chose spaghetti pasta because I know that cooks fast. And I chose chickpeas because I knew they would stand up to some cooking without getting mushy. The peas and spinach are added at the very end so no problem there either!


With those ingredients in mind, I thought some lemon, little nooch (aka nutritional yeast), a bit of dijon, and some vegan parmesan as a topping would round out the flavor of my Lemon One Pot Pasta nicely.

I think this makes a nice spring (or really anytime) dish especially when you want something delicious on the table fast. I hope you enjoy!

Lemon One Pot Pasta Recipe
This vegan Lemon One Pot Pasta is so easy to make and is ready in about 15 minutes. Leeks, peas, spinach, and chickpeas are added to round out this healthy meal!



Ingredients
  • 8 oz spaghetti (not gluten-free)*
  • 2.25 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 leeks (lower, lighter part only) chopped
  • 1 cup chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • juice of 1-1.5 lemons (start with one and then add more at the end)
  • 2.5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 large handful spinach
Toppings
  • Vegan Parmesan
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients except peas and spinach to large saute pan or pot and bring to a boil. I use a saute pan so that the spaghetti fits across the bottom.
  2. Turn down heat to medium and cook until pasta is almost done to your liking (about 10 mins), stirring occasionally.
  3. Add in peas and spinach and cook for a few minutes until peas are heated through and pasta is at the perfect consistency for you (some people like pasta more al dente than others). 
  4. Top with my Vegan Parmesan and enjoy!
