Ingredients 

  • 300 g egg-free pasta I like bowtie or fusilli for this, gluten-free if preferred
  • 400g cooked chickpeas
  • 2 garlic clove chopped
  • 2 tablespoon tahini
  • ¼ cup olive oil + 1 teaspoon for the spinach
  • 1 juice of 1 lemon plus more for serving
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoon sundried tomatoes chopped
  • cup reserved pasta water
  • ½ teaspoon chilli flakes
  • pinch sea salt
  • ¼ cup vegan parmesan optional

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of water to the boil over medium heat and add a good pinch of sea salt. Don't be shy salting your pasta water.
  • Add pasta to the water to cook.
  • Meanwhile, add the chickpeas, oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and sea salt to a blender and blend to a thick, creamy consistency. You may need to add a little water and stop the blending to push the spinach down. 
  • When the pasta is almost al dente, take half a cup of the cooking water out.
  • In a large pan, heat the teaspoon of oil over medium heat and add the spinach and chopped sundried tomatoes. After a minute, add the pasta water, a cup of the hummus and the chilli flakes. Stir together for a minute or until combined and the spinach is wilted.
  • Drain the pasta through a colander and stir it through the hummus sauce. Add more water if needed and add the parmesan and chilli flakes with a splash of lemon juice and a crack of pepper to serve.
