Ingredients

  • 400g cooked chickpeas
  • 2 garlic clove chopped
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 juice of 1 lemon plus more for serving
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • chilli flakes
  • 300 g egg-free spaghetti
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 1/4 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.
  • Add pasta to the water to cook.
  • Meanwhile, add the chickpeas, oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt and spinach to a blender and blend to a hummus consistency. You may need to add a little water and stop the blending to push the spinach down. 
  • When the pasta is cooked al dente, strain it in a colander, keeping a little of the cooking water. Transfer the pasta back to your cooking pot. Stir through several heaped spoons of the hummus and a little cooking water if necessary. Add the parmesan and chilli flakes with a splash of lemon juice and a crack of pepper to serve.
