  • 4 cups vegan chicken-style broth
  • 10 tablespoons vegan butter divided
  • 16 ounces rotini or other medium-wide pasta
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped


  • Into a large pasta pot over medium-high heat, add the chicken-style broth and 5 tablespoons butter. Bring to a boil then add the pasta.
  • Turn the heat down to a medium-low boil. Cook, stirring frequently for 8-10 minutes, until the pasta reaches al dente consistency and the liquid is mostly evaporated.
  • Add the remaining 5 tablespoons of butter, garlic powder, and black pepper. Stir until the butter is completely melted.
  • Adjust seasoning to taste, sprinkle with parsley and serve hot.
