Recipe type: Dinner, Savoury, Vegan
Cuisine: Middle Eastern
Serves: 2
  • Pasta
  • 150g whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 leek
  • 1 jar of antipasti style artichokes (200g)
  • 2 handfuls of kale
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 small pot hummus (approx. 160g)
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Balsamic vinegar (to taste)
  • 1 small bunch basil (approx. 20g)
  • Dukkah
  • 2 tbsp. pine nuts
  • 6 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp onion granules
  • 1 tsp onions seeds
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
  • ½ tbsp. smoked oil (optional)
  1. Boil the pasta according to the pack instructions and set aside (save the water)
  2. Add the chopped leek to a pan on a medium heat with the olive oil
  3. Meanwhile make the dukkah
  4. Toast the pine nuts until golden and right at the end add the sesame seeds to the pan
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan
  6. Add a drizzle of oil (optional) and toast on a low heat
  7. Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn (heating just brings out the flavours a little more but it doesn't need to be cooked)
  8. Once the leek is softened, add the kale and crushed garlic and cook for a couple of minutes
  9. Add the artichokes (and optionally their juices/oil) and warm through
  10. Add the hummus then gradually add pasta water until the consistency looks sauce-like (you want it to be a little loose in the pan as it will continue to thicken when served)
  11. Taste the pasta and add lemon juice/balsamic to taste
  12. Serve with the dukkah and chopped basil on top
* The dukkah can be tasted and made to your own preference. measurements are approximations. Feel free to sub and swap ingredients.

* Nutritional info includes artichokes in oil. If you want to lower the calories drain the artichokes before using.
