Delicious Vegan Risoni

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

This is a delicious vegan risoni which is a hearty and filling meal for lunch or dinner. This is a fantastic lunch the day after you make it - the flavours will continue to develop. It makes a change from a vegan soup or pasta dish, which is great if you are always looking for variety. You can get gluten free risoni also if you eat gluten free. This is a dairy free, sugar free and cruelty free recipe that will leave you feeling satisfied. It's a quick meal and a great one for the family mid-week. Not a lot of preparation time! 



  • 1 brown onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup risoni
  • 1/2 cup yellow split peas
  • 1/2 cup pearl barley
  • 1/2 cup red lentils
  • 1 head of broccoli (broken into florets)
  • 1 large carrot (diced)
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh flat leaf parsley to garnish


  1. Rinse off the pearl barley, red lentils and yellow split peas and pick out any grit or bits that don't belong.
  2. Fry your onion in a little olive oil, add the rest of the ingredients and fry for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable stock – bring to the boil for a minute or two and then reduce the heat to low and simmer until the risoni is cooked.
  4. If it looks too thick you can just add a little water and stir to combine.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with fresh parsley.
  6. Enjoy!


You could add zucchini or sweet potato, pumpkin or any other vegetable you like to this – use whatever you have in the fridge. This is a simple, tasty, filling meal that you could also have as a side dish.

You can also soak your lentils, pearl barley and split peas before hand. This will reduce the cooking time a little.
