WCT Curried Peabanzos Recipe
Benefits of Peas:
Green peas, which are actually fruits and not vegetables are one of the most nutritious foods you could consume. They are a great source of plant-based protein for those individuals who want to consume fewer animal products and they are also low in overall calories. The protein found in peas is of such great quality that many protein powders are beginning to use it as one of their key ingredients.
They contain large amounts of many essential and nonessential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B1, B2, B6, C, K, manganese, fiber, copper, phosphorous, niacin, molybdenum, zinc, magnesium, iron, potassium, choline, and folate.
Peas can be added to almost any dish to increase the protein content of the meal.
