Hummus + Tomato Fusilli | Pasta Friday #2

4/14/2020


For the second post in this yummy series (the first being Artichoke + Caper Spaghetti), I've decided to go with something speedy and simple given our current situation of being at home. This makes for a delicious lunch or dinner, and only takes 15 minutes to whip up. You can make this extra fancy by whipping up your own hummus with the basic cupboard ingredients (chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, oil) but for the sake of ease (and laziness), I'm going with the good ole fridge bought hummus that you will still be able to find at your local supermarket. I love this recipe as it's easy to adapt, you can switch out the spinach for arugula, kale, or any good green. I'd recommend sticking with the tomatoes as it gives the pasta a moister element that hummus can lack.


I N G R E D I E N T S

  • Fusilli
  • Plum or cherry tomatoes
  • Hummus (flavour of your choosing)
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt + pepper


M E T H O D

  • Cook pasta to your desired texture, I like it with a little bite.
  • Drain your pasta (do NOT rinse), sprinkle in a little salt.
  • Mix in the amount of hummus, tomatoes, and spinach you want. I like it to be coated but not drenched in hummus goodness.
  • Squeeze over your lemon, red pepper flakes, and season. 
  • Enjoy!
*This makes for a great cold pasta salad the follow day if you're a fan of leftovers, or picnics.

What's your favourite food to take on picnics? If you're able, I strongly recommend venturing to your garden for a picnic during this lockdown. It feels like a outing, without breaking the rules. A great way to get out of the house, especially if you have children.
