Spaghetti Alla Marinara Vegan

4.67 from 3 votes

This Vegan Spahetti Marinara is everything you need to satisfy the cravings of a big pasta loving family. The tang and juiciness of the tomatoes, the garlicky notes and that kick that comes only from a generous dose of extra virgin olive oil . The sauce takes a long time to cook. But it is worth all the patience. One can cook a large batch and refrigerate it for up-to 10 days in a sterile jar.

Servings 3


  • 300 gm Spaghetti
  • 200 gm ripe tomatoes
  • 1 medium white/yellow onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • 3 1/2 tablespoon Olive oil
  • Fresh herbs Parsley or Italian Basil
  • Paprika optional but gives a nice kick to the sauce


  • Put the tomatoes in boiling water for 5 mins. Switch off flame but let the tomatoes sit in hot water for 10 mins.
  • Remove the skins and tear up the tomatoes using your hands. Transfer to a saucepan.
  • Roughly chop the onion and add to the saucepan. Peel and crush garlic . Add to the saucepan.
  • Add 3 tbsp olive oil, Salt and paprika along with 1 cup hot water. Place the saucepan on a low flame and let it simmer for 20 mins.
  • Use a heavy spoon to crush the ingredients against the sides of the saucepan.
  • Let it simmer for another 20-25 mins. Remove and keep aside.
  • Boil about 3 liters of water in a deep saucepan.
  • Once it starts to bubble, add salt and let it come to a rolling boil. Add the spaghetti .
  • Once the spaghetti is cooked aldente, strain it using a metal collander. But do preserve a cupful of the pasta water if needed later for thinning the sauce.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet. (Add a crushed garlic for extra flavor)
  • Add the pasta and give it a gentle toss to coat the strands with olive oil .
  • Add a cupful of the marinara sauce and a little pasta water to the Spaghetti.
  • Toss together and cook for 2 mins.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs just before serving.


  • Giving a good shake to the pasta after straining prevents the pasta from sticking to each other.
  • But in case it has become a little softer than intended,  add some olive oil and toss it to prevent stickiness.
