I really do love Hummus. It is probably one of my favorite things to eat. I also am very good at food concoction. I don't know why it comes so easily, it just does. So, with that in mind, I give you my new favorite dish. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus + Vegetables + Whole Wheat Pasta = DELIGHTFUL!!!
I went to Fresh and Easy the other day and picked up all of the ingredients needed for my pasta dish. I can't post an exact recipe because I worked so fast on it I don't really remember the exacts of what I put into it. But I'll go over what I can remember!!!!!
First I chopped up 1 zucchini, a few Roma tomatoes, green onion and mushroom and threw them into a pot with about a tablespoon of canola oil. (I'm all out of olive oil, how lame is that?) I added about a half cup of vegetable broth to the mixture and added some seasonings. Then I let that cook until the zucchini was cooked but not falling apart. I wanted my vegetbles firm enough to stand out in the pasta.
Then I took my already boiled whole wheat pasta and added the mixture to the pasta making sure to get as much of the mixture out of the pan as possible. (Leave no goodness behind!)
Then... the best part!!! I added about 4 heaping tablespoons of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus! OH YEAH! And here Is my final result:
I really did enjoy this one. I loved it so much that I had my portion, then took the rest to work to share with 2 co-workers. I got an amazing reaction from my very good and not vegan friend JOEY! Thank you Darlin' Joey!
