If you need a quick snack or light meal, this recipe for Smashed Pea and Kefir + Protein on Toast is for you. And it’s easy to make and packed with protein.
Did you know? Peas aren’t actually a vegetable; they’re a legume! Coming from the same family as lentils, chickpeas, beans and peanuts. Though one 80g serving counts as one of your 5 a day.
Nutritionally, peas are a source of vitamins and minerals including iron, B vitamins and phosphorus (needed to help build strong bones and teeth).
Bonus recipe: skip the toast and use the topping as a dip with crisps, crudités or pita bread. Perfect for parties and movie night.
This recipe was written by Hannah Webb during a two week challenge to swap in Kefir or Kefir + Protein in place of another ingredient in a meal each day.
