Nothing is more comforting than a big pot full of pasta bubbling and ready to eat when loved ones come home. Make our delicious mushroom and chickpea one-pot pasta for your family quickly and easily with very little mess and enjoy a home cooked vegan meal together. 


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced small
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 10oz baby Bella or white mushrooms, sliced thin
  • 1 packed cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1-15oz can chickpeas, drained
  • 1-6oz can tomato paste
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1 tsp dry oregano
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (or to taste, optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
  • 4 cups vegetable or mushroom broth
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened almond-coconut beverage (alternatively you can use canned light coconut milk)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups small pasta shells


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet for which you have a lid. Add the onion and cook over medium high heat for 2-3 minutes, until translucent, stirring often
  2. Add the garlic, mushrooms, and basil and continue cooking for 7-8 minutes. Add the chickpeas, tomato paste, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes (if using), salt and black pepper, stir well, so the chickpeas are well coated, and cook for 2 minutes
  3. Add the broth, coconut beverage and nutritional yeast and stir well. Bring to a boil, add the pasta and mix well. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes or until the pasta is tender, but still has a bite
  4. Remove from heat, stir well and let it sit, covered, for 10 minutes
