  • 200 g Pasta
  • 150 g Hummus Plain
  • 2 Onions Red, Medium
  • 10-15 Kalamata Olives
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Glaze
  • 1/2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Lemon Juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Chives to garnish


  • Finely slice the onions. Add the oil to a pan and cook the onions on high heat with a pinch of salt until translucent and slightly charred (caramelized).
  • Bring to a boil 700 ml of salted water. Boil the pasta 2 minutes less than recommended cooking time on the packet.
  • In the meantime add the balsamic glaze and the olives (sliced) to the pan with the onions. Sauté for 1 minute then combine the hummus and the juice of half a lemon. Add around 1/2 cup of pasta water and stir well.
  • Drain the pasta al dente, making sure to keep some extra water.
  • Add the pasta to the pan with the sauce, coat well and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add extra water if too dry.
  • Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed and serve the pasta topped with finely sliced chives.
