Who likes to do dishes? Not me! So that’s why one-pot recipes are some of my favourite recipes. Especially on those busy weeknights when you have a million things you could be doing other than cleaning your kitchen after making a nice home-cooked meal. This Vegan One Pot Pasta is incredibly easy, won’t dirty all your dishes, and has a Greek twist that I think you’re going to love. 

As you know, Greek food is my favourite food. I grew up in a Greek family, and my Mom would whip up some of the best Greek dishes. You’ve seen me make vegan variations of the classics, but I also like to add some Greek pizzazz into other recipes too, like this Vegan One Pot Pasta.

How to make this yummy one-pot pasta dish

This is the easiest step-by-step you’ll see for a recipe. All you literally do is the following to get a yummy, creamy Vegan One Pot Pasta dish in an instant is:

  • Choose your ingredients, use the ones below I used, or pick your own
  • Prep your ingredients by chopping them all up

This Vegan One Pot Pasta with a Greek spin is delicious, easy, and all you really need is one pot to whip it together. No mess!


1 tbsp olive oil

1 medium-sized sweet white onion, finely chopped

3 cloves of garlic, pressed

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp cracked pepper

1 tbsp. dried oregano

1 tsp dried dill

dash of paprika

dash of red pepper chili

1 cup cherry tomatoes, whole

1/2 cup artichoke hearts, halved

1/4 – 1/2 cup olives, variety, pitted

2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

3 tbsp. vegan feta

a handful of fresh oregano and thyme, roughly chopped

400 g pasta of choice

4-6 cups water begin with 4 cups and slowly add up to 6 cups


Into a wide, deep pot add all your ingredients.

Bring your pot to a boil and cook for around 25 – 30 minutes (or until cooked to your desired consistency)* on medium heat with the lid on.

As your pasta cooks keep an eye on it, gradually add your extra water to ensure proper cooking and to avoid burning.

Enjoy with fresh herbs!

That’s it – you can thank me later!


If you choose to use GF pasta I suggest starting with less water and cooking as instructed on the package.

In last few days have made this and the courgette/ butternut squash casserole, even though I didn’t keep strictly to recipe they were both delicious. Even my meat eating husband loved them!!!
