Smoky Green Pea & Chickpea Buddha Bowl a.k.a. Seconds P(l)eas(e)!

Did you know green peas are an amazing source of protein that support healthy blood sugar control, boost digestive + gut health & the body’s antioxidants capacity + ability to fight off disease + infection & they’re rich in vitamin A, K, C, B complex vitamins + iron, so they provide a good source of energy, are amazing for the skin, boosting collagen production, maintaining strong bones + preventing anemia + chronic fatigue.

FYI: like most grains, nuts & legumes, they do however contain low levels of anti-nutrients in the form of phytic acid, which is why it’s best to eat them fully cooked to avoid any digestive discomfort.

This bowl is a plant protein PARTAY! It took me no more than 10 minutes to prepare & it was so delicious + satisfying!
