ONE POT CREAMY LEMON SPINACH PASTA - INGREDIENTS1 onion, chopped1 shallot, chopped4 cloves garlic, mashed2 tb olive oil or oil of choice4 cups organic spinach3 cups veggie broth or bone broth1 can full fat coconut milk1 14-16oz package pasta of choice2 tsp sea salt1 tsp cumin1 tsp pepper2 lemons, juiced + zest of one lemonoptional: shredded parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes

I make pasta a lot and I‘m OBSESSED with one pot pasta dishes because they are literally ONE POT—you don’t even have to drain the pasta. Most of the water gets absorbed into the pasta, so any sauce you add will make the dish super creamy! If you haven’t tried this cooking method yet, you MUST! Perfect for lazy people like me with 5-star tastebuds!

This ONE POT CREAMY LEMON SPINACH PASTA! is totally vegan friendly, though this time I used bone broth instead of veggie broth because my other obsession in life is bone broth, but that’s beside the point! Here’s what you need to make it:

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or oil of choice
  • 4 cups organic spinach
  • 3 cups veggie broth or bone broth
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1 14-16 oz package pasta of choice
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 lemons, juiced + zest of one lemon
  • optional: shredded parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes


  • In a large pot on the stove, heat oil and sauté the onions, shallot, and garlic for a few minutes until soft.
  • Next add broth, coconut milk, pasta, sea salt, pepper, cumin, and juice of two lemons.
  • Stir together everything well.
  • Turn heat to low and cover.
  • Let simmer 15-18 minutes.
  • Remove lid and stir in the spinach and lemon zest.
  • Return lid and turn heat off. NOTE: by this point, the liquid should be about 80-90% absorbed. If you are using gluten free pasta, it will take longer for the liquid to absorb, so wait about 20 minutes to eat.
  • Add toppings of choice and ENJOYYYYYYY!!!!

  2. 5 stars
    This is so easy and delicious! I’m going to make some chicken to add to it too when I need more protein.

  3. Is this suppose to have Cumin? I see it in the ingredient list, but it isn’t mentioned in the directions. Just wanted to double check. Thanks!

    • Hi Rebecca, yes it does! You just add it with the salt and pepper. I updated the instructions above.
