Creamy Tomato & Hummus Spaghetti

Posted in Savory, Simply Delicious, Vegan | No Comments »

After enjoying carrots and hummus for a few days a week, I sometimes lose interest in using hummus as a dip. So, one day I decided to add hummus to freshly cooked rotini and I liked it. The tangy “sauce” was made with 1/2 cup hummus and 3 Tbsp. pasta cooking water for 2 cups of cooked pasta. Then, I took the idea one step further and added hummus to homemade tomato sauce. If you’re going to try this recipe, I strongly suggest using homemade tomato sauce because commercial tomato sauces may be too strong/salty to mix with hummus.

2 tbsp. pasta cooking water, plus more reserved to use as needed

¾ cup homemade tomato sauce

Combine pasta cooking water, tomato sauce, and hummus in a small bowl. Add to spaghetti and use more pasta water to add more fluidity if needed. Garnish with some grated cheese and parsley.

 

Frozen Yogurt Cookies

Frozen Yogurt Cookies were born after a friend of mine was disappointed that my last blog entry didn’t include a recipe. These are easy to make and add a special finishing touch to any meal.

Raspberry Lemon & Lemon Spice

Choose thin, yet sturdy cookies to carry a spoonful of yogurt. A sturdy cookie is important, so that the yogurt’s moisture doesn’t soak through it. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top of the yogurt and freeze the assembled cookies on an uncovered tray. They’ll be ready to eat in about 1 ½ hours.
