But why are green peas so tasty?
And how do they taste?
What are green pea beans?
Green pea pods are a common ingredient in most vegetarian and vegan diets.
They are commonly grown commercially as green peas, but the green peas are actually a member of the legume family, including lentils, beans, chickpeas and peas.
They’re commonly grown for their legume fiber and are packed with many vitamins and minerals.
The pods of green peas contain a unique nutritional composition that’s particularly appealing to vegans, vegetarians and vegans who like to avoid grains and legumes.
The pods contain a mixture of nutrients that’s unique to these plants, and this combination is why green peas are an ideal alternative to grain-based diets, especially for people who are lactose intolerant.
While you can eat the pods in any number of ways, we like to use them in salads, as a substitute for potatoes or other baked goods.
For a healthier snack, green peases are best eaten raw or roasted.
