Get the Recipe: Vegan Garlic Butter Spaghetti

This vegan garlic butter pasta is comfort food at its best! Give it a go if you're after a new plant based weeknight dinner that requires just a few ingredients, but brings in maximum flavor. Easy to make gluten-free, as long as you use gluten-free spaghetti.


  • 10 oz spaghetti
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 large bell pepper, de-seeded and sliced
  • 1 tbsp chilli flakes
  • 1/4 cup soy cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, (juice of 1 lemon)
  • 1/2 cup grated vegan cheese


  • Saucepan
  • Colander
  • Frying pan


  • Cook the spaghetti for around 10 minutes, until al dente, in well-salted water.
  • Heat the vegan butter in a large pan over a medium heat. When it melts, add the garlic, and allow it to cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add a sliced orange bell pepper and red chilli flakes. Cook for 4-5 minutes more, until softened.
  • Add the soy cream, salt and dried thyme. Stir together well for a couple of minutes, before adding in spaghetti using a pair of kitchen tongs, and pouring in around 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water. Toss together until thoroughly combined.
  • Squeeze in some fresh lemon juice and add vegan cheese, and continue mixing. Serve when the cheese melts.
