This recipe for Beet Hummus Pasta with Arugula, Lemon, Feta and Pistachios was inspired by busy Mom of four and entrepreneur Nada Choufi. Nada’s company, Mother May I Bake, makes fresh hummus and when I asked her some of her favourite things to do with the hummus she said she loves to just add a tub of the beet hummus to pasta for a two ingredient meal.
I can imagine how awesome an answer that is to the age-old question, What’s for supper?, when you have four children between 0 to 9 years old! I got thinking about my favourite flavour combinations with beets and added them to Nada’s great idea. She totally inspired me and here are the pretty in pink results.
I hope you’ll give it a try for your next Meatless Monday. If your vegan, substitute vegan cheese for the feta or add some crispy chickpeas instead. The recipe makes a lot. I hope you savour it all ™.

This dish will brighten your table and please your palate. The beet hummus turns the pasta bright pink, the arugula, lemon, feta and pistachios add pizzaz! It’s easy to convert it from vegetarian to vegan by changing up the cheese garnish. You could use a vegan cheese or even some crispy chickpeas instead of the feta.
