Ingredients

  • 1 package pasta of choice

Sriracha Chickpeas:

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Sauce:

  • 1 cup hummus
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup water

Optional toppings: feta and/or black olives

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta according to package instructions.

  2. While the pasta cooks, make the chickpeas.  Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium heat.  Add the drained chickpeas, sriracha and garlic powder and stir to combine.  Cook over medium for about 5 - 8 minutes, stirring periodically (I use a plastic spatula so I can scrape the sauce off the sides and onto the chickpeas as I stir).  Remove from heat.

  3. For the sauce: In a bowl, combine the hummus, lemon juice, maple syrup, garlic powder and water.  Stir to combine thoroughly.  (Tip: use a larger bowl than you think you need so the water doesn't slosh around at first.  I use a fork or a small whisk to mix it really well.)

  4. Once the pasta is done, drain it, and toss with the chickpeas and sauce.  Optional toppings: feta and olives.  Eat!
