150g / 1 cup Carrot – finely chopped – 2 medium carrots
Salt to taste (I have added a total of 1+1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt)

1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 Teaspoon Chilli flake (Optional)
2 cups / (1 Can 540 ml) Cooked chickpeas
1+1/2 cup / 350ml Strained tomatoes/Passata
4 cups / 1 Liter of Water
160g / 2 cups approximately – Pasta (mini rigatoni) or pasta of choice

Garnish:
1/3 cup / 15g Parsley – finely chopped
Drizzle of Olive oil – 1 to 2 Tbsp

METHOD:

To a heated pan add olive oil, onion, celery, carrot, and salt (½ tsp). Fry on medium-high heat until the onions are soft and just start to caramelize. Then reduce the heat to medium or medium-low. Add garlic, oregano, and chili flakes and continue to fry on medium heat for about 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.

Now add the cooked chickpeas, strained tomatoes/passata, and water and mix well. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low and cook for about 15 minutes on low heat for the flavors to develop.

After 15 minutes, uncover the pot and increase the heat to medium and bring it to a gentle boil. Add the pasta and salt and cook uncovered on medium heat until the pasta is al dente.

Please note by the time the pasta is cooked most of the water will be gone and you will be left with a creamy sauce. If it happened that the water cooks out faster and the pasta is still not cooked, add some boiling water to it. Please DO NOT add cold water. You can adjust the consistency of the sauce as per your liking whether you want it soupy or thick. Turn off the stove. Garnish with finely chopped parsley and a drizzle of good-quality olive oil. Mix well.

  1. These look delicious! Can I ask what your view is on tinned (cooked) pulses as I was always told never allow them to boil (as they can taste hard and also not great for digestion) and to only add them towards the end of recipes?
