My secret ingredient for my savory, velvety smooth Roasted Red Pepper Rigatoni is hummus! I use @mezete_global! 🍝 the delicious gourmet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus! What I love most about @mezete_global Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is it makes for such a creamy dish! #thehummiest. It is made with all-natural tahini and chickpeas, with no additives or preservatives. Now that is something I can be happy about! Shop MèzeteTM Gourmet Hummus Variety Pack in select Costcos in Quebec and Ontario! This recipe is also #vegan!
There are so many different types of hummus out there but what I love about this one it that they use super clean ingredients with no additives or preservatives and all natural tahini and chickpeas. I’ve always said it’s important to know what we put into our bodies and how those ingredients make us feel.
The cleaner the better for digestion and energy.

- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tbsp fresh basil chopped
- Garnish optional: fresh vegan Parmesan cheese and more basil

- Add in chopped roasted red peppers, and tomato sauce. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat, and place mixture in a food processor or blender. Add in almond milk and nutritional yeast. (This will make it “cheesy.” Purée together.
