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.
