Easy Vegan Tomato Pasta and Home Made Olive Ciabatta Garlic Bread

Servings: 2 | Time: 20 minutes | Difficulty: Super easy!

This tomato pasta and garlic bread recipe is SO easy and perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.

Ingredients for the Pasta:

  • 1 teaspoon of vegan butter, I used Pure Dairy Free Sunflower Spread
  • 1 white onion, chopped into small cubes
  • 400g of chopped tomatoes, I used Sainbury’s Chopped Tomatoes, Basics
  • A pinch of sugar
  • A pinch of Himalayan pink salt, I used Profusion Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
  • 4 teaspoons of oregano (or more to taste)
  • A handful of rocket for the top
  • 4 ounces of wholewheat spaghetti

Directions for the Pasta:

  1. Fry the onions in the vegan butter until soft
  2. Add the tomatoes, sugar, salt and oregano. Leave on the heat for 10-15 mins, stirring occasionally
  3. Cook up the spaghetti at the same time, as per the instructions on the packet
  4. Serve with a handful of rocket on top and with your favourite vegan cheese, mine at the moment is the Sainsbury’s Deliciously FreeFrom Grated Cheddar-Style Coconut Based Alternative (what a mouthful!)

Ingredients for the Garlic Bread:

  • Marks and Spencer green olive ciabatta roll (or any type of ciabatta)
  • Vegan butter, I used Pure Dairy Free Sunflower Spread
  • Garlic, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6
  2. Toast the ciabatta roll until slightly browned in your toaster / under a grill
  3. Mix together a lump of vegan butter (enough to thinly cover the roll) with the chopped garlic in a bowl
  4. Test before spreading! If it doesn’t seem garlicky enough, bung in some more! You can never go wrong with too much garlic
  5. Put in the oven for 5-10 minutes until the butter is melted
