Yield: 4 servings


1 pound whole wheat penne
1/4 cup EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 cloves finely chopped or grated garlic
1 medium eggplant, peeled and chopped
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, zested
1 cup vegetable stock
2 to 3 tablespoons tahini paste
1/2 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts

  1. Heat a large pot of water to a boil, salt water and cook pasta to al dente.
