4 Ingredient Spaghetti Squash Hummus “Pasta”

November 20, 2015 at 6:54 pm 2 comments

What’s a girl to do when the fridge is running on empty and she’s in need of a speedy meal? All I had besides a shelf of staples (coconut milk, chia seeds, tahini and coconut butter) was the following:

  • half a container of roasted red pepper hummus
  • half a carton of grape tomatoes
  • several cups of cooked spaghetti squash

So that’s I made for my lunch concoction… the simplicity of the dish far exceeded the complexity of the taste. I added a tablespoon or so of hemp seeds with a dash of salt and freshly ground black pepper and it was a tasty dish!

I should have known hummus would be good with spaghetti squash…it’s compliments just about everything! I’ll be making this again on purpose with a few more add-ins for some additional bulk. I am thinking chickpeas or navy beans, sautéed greens and roasted broccoli or caramelized onions. (I have a weird thing about always wanting something green on my plate.)

Please forgive the quick photo snapped on my phone…I didn’t realize how much I’d love this dish until I was part of the way through but knew I wanted to share it!

    That looks great. How about spinach or kale in it with feta? You have given me a very good idea for my spaghetti squash I have in my fridge.

    Just made this and oh my! It’s delicious! Used homemade hummus and a cut up tomatoe. Think small amount of chopped cucumber and some feta would be a great addition. Thanks for sharing!!
