Huminara Sauce

Hey guys! Hope you are all having a fantastic night. I loved reading all of your ideas for your own homemade peanut butters! I can’t wait to try out some of your combos!

Also, the recipe page got a majorly needed update last night. Feel free to take a gander! 😉

So I’m sure you’re looking at the title of this post and thinking…huma-wha?!

Please, let me enlighten you. You see, there once was a collection of white beans and chickpeas that didn’t make the final cut in the dessert hummus auditions. All those little beans dreamt that someday they would become a smooth and creamy hummus…and (on the other side of the refrigerator) there lived a container of tomato puree that envisioned a future as a perfectly seasoned marinara sauce.

*Insert lightbulb!*

I introduce to you huminara (hummus + marinara) sauce!

Huminara Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup white kidney beans
  • 1/2 cup chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup tomato puree
  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning {edited, originally typed 1 tablespoon…oops!}
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • salt to taste

1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy.
2. Enjoy as a pasta sauce, pizza sauce, dip for bread sticks, or on a spoon!

I made this from scratch and it was super easy, but for all my Sandra Lee lovers out there, you could always use pre-made hummus and marinara sauce. Which would be helpful if you do not own a food processor. Also, I think the addition of fresh basil would take this to a whole new level!

So what does one do with such a fabuloso creation? You make spaghetti of course!

 

Whole wheat linguine topped with” huminara” and freshly grated parmesan cheese served with a side of steamed broccoli sprinkled with Garlic Gold nuggets.

And FYI, it reheats very well…I had this for my lunch today and it was just as tasty as the day I made it!

Well, I’m off to finish up my Dexter oogling watching so I can get it back to Netflix before the craziness of the move sets in! 3 more days! Ahhhh!

What’s your favorite Italian dish?
I love manicotti…well, anything stuffed with mounds of cheese is alright in my book!  🙂
