Believe it or not, it is entirely possible to make a delicious meal with minimal mess and washing up. Here are our favourite vegan recipes where it all comes together in one pot. 

One-pot puttanesca

One-pot pasta can be tricky to nail, but this recipe ensures you’ll get a rich, punchy puttanesca sauce of black olives, capers and tomatoes, coupled with pasta with the perfect bite. It’ll be ready to devour in 20 minutes, with only one pot to wash up after. It’s a perfect midweek meal that delivers on taste every time.

Vegan cheesy gnocchi

Want an even quicker dinner? Rustle up this cheesy gnocchi for a delicious comforting dinner, which can be made in eight minutes. Yes, you heard that right. These tasty pillows are tossed in a smooth and silky ‘cheese’ sauce and topped with toasted breadcrumbs for some extra bite. 

Vegan saffron risotto

A veganised version of the Milanese staple dish, this saffron risotto is the perfect hack for fancy dinners and parties while also making a great dinner for the family. It’s silky and creamy, and the saffron adds an umami flavour that gives the risotto its distinctive yellow colour. All this risotto asks from you is to give it 30 minutes of your undivided attention, and in return, you'll be rewarded with perfection in a bowl.

Potato and sugar snap pea curry

This potato and pea curry is exactly what you want on a cold winter evening. It will fill you up and keep you warm with its fragrant blend of spices. If you’re looking for a meal that’s hearty and can come together in one pot, this recipe is one to bookmark. 

Vegan paella

Paella is Valencian for ‘frying pan’ because the whole dish comes together with this one mighty instrument. This veganised version is fresh and deeply savoury, while the saffron, arguably the star ingredient, gives it that distinctive honeyed taste that makes paella so moreish.

Kimchi, brown rice and tofu soup

It's one of those perfect recipes where you can simply put a load of things in a pot and sit back and wait as the magic happens. With a fragrant stock, this soup will always be a perfect pick-me-up during colder months.
