10 Minute Prep Vegan Pasta with Capers And Lemon

Hey folks, here is a recipe to make a very easy, budget-friendly vegan pasta dish!

Like most of my recipes, this is a great way to empty your fridge (like that vegetable right at the back, we always forget about? You know the one!).

This recipe will literally take you 10 minutes to make. While the pasta is cooking on the stove, you can make the sauce and everything will come together nicely!


-Your favourite pasta


-Olive oil

-Handful of walnuts

-Handful of parsley


-One lemon




  1. Boil the water on a saucepan. When it reaches boiling point, add your pasta (I’m not going to tell you how much to put in — eat as much pasta as you want!)

  2. While the pasta is cooking, pour some olive oil in a frying pan. Turn the hob on and add your garlic, some grated lemon zest and some chilli.

  3. Chop your parsley and add it to the pan as well.

  4. Chop the walnuts without making them too thin and add it to the pan with the capers.

  5. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice directly in the pan.

  6. Stir the sauce and be careful not to burn it.

  7. If you would like your sauce to be thicker, add some of the boiling water from the pasta and a teaspoon of cornflour passing it through a sieve (you can use regular flour as well). Mix it in until it’s completely dissolved.

  8. Check your pasta and drain it a couple of minutes before it’s ready. Add it to the frying pan.

  9. Turn your flame higher and cook your pasta with the sauce for another minute or two. At this point, you can add some extra lemon zest if you like!

  10. Finally, add the breadcrumbs and mix it in.

There you go! When you plate your pasta, just ass a bit of olive oil on top and serve. Hope you will love it!
