Directions

Click:

  1. Add the oil to a large pot on high heat. When hot, add the shallots, garlic, and chili, and sauté until lightly golden, about 3 minutes, adding a splash of water as needed to deglaze the pan.
  2. Add all of the remaining ingredients to the pot, except for the spinach, and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer with the lid partially covered. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  3. When the pasta is al dente, after about 12 - 15 minutes, remove from the heat and add in the spinach. Stir to combine.
  4. Squeeze overtop some fresh lemon juice, sprinkle on thinly sliced basil leaves or some red chilli flakes if desired, and enjoy!

Notes

  • * If desired, the bouillon cubes and water can be substituted for equal parts vegetable stock.
  • Variations: add in some diced red pepper, artichoke, or fresh tomatoes.

This is one of my new favourite recipes :) it's sooo delicious Sadia!
It also works very well with 340g Jasmin rice instead of pasta :)

This has become a household staple. I LOVE this pasta, thanks for sharing!!


Emilie - April 26, 2021, 12:28 a.m.

I LOVE this recipe! I've made it like ten times already and all my family members love it, even the non-vegans ones! I often add some artichokes and chickpeas to get a little protein. Thank you PUL xx

Super great ideas, Emilie, thanks for sharing! So glad your family enjoys this one 😊

I'm in love with this recipe! I just finished a delicious bowl of it ad it was so so good. The coconut milk surprised me, such a great addition!
(I have a question; would this freeze well?)
I love the new website btw, both on desktop and smartphone, well done!!
A big hug from Italy ❤

PUL Team - April 20, 2021, 1:27 a.m.

So happy to hear, Giulia! We can't say with certainty as we haven't tested it out, but it could likely freeze okay. You'll want to make sure the pasta is slightly undercooked to prevent the pasta from becoming squishy/overcooked when you reheat it. Allowing it to cool after cooking and then storing it in an airtight container will also help prevent the texture from disintegrating. Sending a super big hug back to Italy 🥰

This is the best pasta ever! I have made it for all of my friends and family, vegan and non vegan and it’s always a hit!

The best?! So lovely to hear Megan, thank you for sharing 😍

So good. I love to add Beyond Meat's sausage and it takes the flavor over the top. My non-vegan family members love it. Thank you Sadia

Hello there ! I love your recipes. I have done this one twice already. I have one question regarding the yeast. What is the purpose of this ingredient in the recipe?

PUL Team - April 1, 2021, 4:52 p.m.

Hello Laure, that's a great question! Nutritional yeast helps with the creaminess of the pasta and contributes to a cheesy/nutty taste 😄
