Worried about protein? No more! Did you know Peas are a great source of plant-based protein? There are so many myths about protein deficiency and a plant-based diet, but getting your daily amount of protein can be quite easy eating balanced meals.
I shared this recipe a few days ago in my Instagram account, and I wasn’t planning on writing it down on the blog, but my blog followers shouldn’t miss this one either!
If you’re on Instagram and not following Gastrawnomica yet, you’re missing out a lot! I post pictures every day and of almost everything that happens in my kitchen, plus some other recipes than I don’t post here.
Anyways, I love this recipe because it is super simple and easy to prepare, and perfect for a putlock, party or simply when you have some “random” visitors and you don’t know what to make.
Before taking the chips and unhealthy dips out, make this 5 min “hummus” and share with everyone. Plus, it’s a great idea to make for a movie night too!
Gastrawnomica’s Protein Rich Pea “Hummus”
2 cups green peas, raw or steamed (if steamed it will be creamier)
3 full Tbsp Tahini
Water or lime juice (if needed)
3 chives, chopped
Small handful of parsley leaves (optional)
Seasoning to taste
Blend peas in food processor or high speed blender until mashed. Add chives, parsley and tahini and mix again. You can add a little bit of water/lime juice if needed, to make it smoother. Season to taste.
Put in a bowl and serve with fresh vegetables, like carrots, celery, zucchini or cucumber.
A super easy, 5-10 min recipe that everyone at home will love! And a great dip to bring to a potluck and share some healthy food with the people you love the most!
Talk to you soon! Have a beautiful weekend!
