I think I’m not alone. We all have those busy times. I already got your minimal time food cravings covered with my 10 Minute Stuffed Avocados with Mango Salsa – so good. If you haven’t already tried it, it’s high time to change that, friends!

Today the recipe for 10 Minute Mediterranean Vegan Pasta is a simple combination of my fondness for Mediterranean food and my desire to give you as many healthy vegan recipes in easy steps.

Recently I had a really busy week. It was fun and exciting but to be honest on those days I’m craving something really quick, something that is done in no time.

But a lack in time doesn’t mean I can’t have a tasty and delicious pasta! Now in only 10 minutes we can make an exciting pasta together.

The result is a 10 Minute Mediterranean Vegan Pasta that is absolutely flavorful, satisfying, creamy, savory, Mediterranean inspired, easy, tasty, fast, delicious. Definitely a must make weekend staple for a quick and healthy plant based meal.

Shall we start? Friends, the 10 minutes are running – and we will have fun and enjoy this.

Cook your favorite pasta according the manufacturer’s directions. While the pasta is cooking prepare the hummus sauce: just combine hummus, water, garlic, season with salt and pepper.

Finally add olives, walnuts and optional dried cranberries if you love a bit sweet flavor contrast to the savory. When the pasta is done, drain, and combine with the sauce, ready.

10 minutes, take my word, friends! Isn’t it an easy game? Of course, nothing complicated here, nor big magic here. When time is up, you will enjoy a delicious pasta – it’s a good deal!

Best part, you can take and bring this pasta wherever you want. This will make a perfect work lunch, or a quick weekend dinner in the evenings after work.

You can double the batch if you plan to feed a bigger company or make more in advance so you have it always on hand.

Just take your favorite hummus for this recipe. Either store-bought (but if you do this please make sure to buy organic hummus that is without any preservatives or some stuff that you don’t want and can’t define).

Otherwise friends, I can highly recommend to make one of my Hummus recipes, like my Pistachio Hummus or my Olive Hummus.

This 10 minute Mediterranean Vegan Pasta is not only fast and delicious, it has as always some important health benefits.

Hummus is full of protein, thanks to chickpeas and tahini, which is good if you having a big hunger craving. This will do the trick, but of course the protein function is good for balancing your blood sugar levels. A double win, friends.

Oh pasta, pasta! Looks amazing Florian. I absolutely love pasta and eat it weekly. Such a great idea to use hummus as a sauce! I'm curious as to how that comes out, I'm intrigued! I love, love that you added all those yummy olives and a ton of garlic. To me, you can never have too many olives or garlic, they give such amazing flavor. This looks like such comforting food and I would be super happy filling up on this pasta!

What an interesting idea to use hummus as the basis for a pasta sauce. I'm trying to imagine how the hummus tastes when it is warm (poured on top of the hot pasta.) In any event, I'll have to try it.

This looks delicious. I like the addition of the olives for the salty brininess they bring to this dish.
