Creamy Hummus Pasta With Roasted Brussels Sprouts [Vegan]
- 3 cups brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 13 1/4 ounces package pasta of choice
- 1 cup hummus
- 3/4 cup pasta cooking water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Vegan parmesan
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (optional)
For the Brussels Sprouts:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the brussels sprouts on a baking sheet, along with the chickpeas if using. Drizzle with olive oil and toss until evenly coated. Spread them in an even layer and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 20-30 minutes until lightly golden and crispy. The cook time depends on the size.
For the Pasta:
Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Save 3/4 of the cooking water before draining.
Add the hummus, garlic powder and lemon juice to the pasta. Add the water, starting with 1/2 cup and increasing as needed (it thickens as you stir it). You don't want the pasta to be dry! Stir until the sauce is creamy and evenly distributed.
Serve the pasta topped with the brussels sprouts, chickpeas (if using), vegan parmesan and pepper.
This pasta can get a little dry when reheated. You can add an extra squeeze of lemon juice to help and it's still good, but it's best served fresh.
