A really quick full flavoured pasta dish based on the middle eastern dip Hummus.

We decided to save money a while back by not buying food for weekend lunches. It’s so easy to just grab a pasty or sandwich in town or on the way home from church. I don’t even take account of weekend lunches in the meal planner and grocery shop any more – we use it as an opportunity to use up things in the fridge or freezer that are left over or surplus to requirements for other meals.

Today I raided the freezer for freezer soup ingredients but nothing was forthcoming. Instead, I raided the tins cupboard for a very quick vegan pasta based on the ever popular Hummus Vegetable Pie. It’s not one for eating before having vampires round for tea – but if you’re not vegan, do pile on the cheese. Inspired by the classic middle eastern dip Hummus, it makes a great quick lunch or light supper – a salad or garlic bread would really round it off.
