Green Pea purée is a great accompaniment to almost every dishes and it’s very easy to make.
Add an amazing splash of color and creamy texture to your dishes!
The hardest thing when planning a menu is what to offer besides the meat dishes instead of the usual side dishes (potatoes, rice). That’s why I’m always happy to add a side dish to my list. At first, I was looking for an alternative to potato puree for dietary reasons and since everyone loves green peas at home, I had to try it in a puree form as well. Seasoned with parsley, a little basil, and garlic. It has become a simple, light and delicious side dish!
It is not only delicious but it can be prepared quickly and it is also dietary. What else do you need?
It is Worth to Eat Green Peas All Year
Green pea, although a summer hit, is a valuable source of protein throughout the year, and not just for vegetarians. Frozen is much more useful than canned food, it can be used to make many meals and not only delicious but also heal and you can lose weight with it easily.
Pea is one of our oldest crops, grown six thousand years before our time. Initially, the livestock was fed with this because of their high protein content which had little effect on them. Its healing effect is also diverse.
It Has Positive Effects on Blood Pressure and Bones
Peas are high in calcium and magnesium, which is important for the bones and your nervous system. It has a beneficial effect on vascular disease, and if you are a regular pea consumer, you will not have a problem with your blood pressure. The calorie value of a green pea is 88 kcal per 100 grams, roughly the same as that of a potato. Its protein content is also high: 5-7 g.
Peas contains a lot of essential amino acids and other valuable nutrients are carotene, vitamins B1 and B2, but it also contains iron, zinc, manganese, and copper. Green Pea is also rich in vitamin C, so it is worth taking for inflammatory diseases and digestive disorders.
Let’s Make Green Pea the Part of Your Diet
Pea has a sweet taste, but it is not one of the fattening foods, so you can touch and snack even during dieting. Raw green peas have a sugar content of 10 percent. Diet, diet and healthy food can be the finest foods, whether raw, steamed or cooked. It also aids in the proper functioning of digestion. With its fibers, it accelerates bowel movement, eliminates constipation, and also helps to achieve ideal body weight by keeping waste material out of the body.
Like most vegetables, peas are mainly eaten raw, as they reduce their nutritional and vitamin content. Of course, you can make vegetables, soup, or even stew, but it’s even more delicious in scrambled eggs, in a green salad, or you can taste the squeezed juice in the form of a drink.
I don’t think I’m alone in the fact that figuring outside dishes during cooking is the biggest problem. If you are dieting, this is an even more difficult task. I wanted to try pea puree for a long time, and now it’s finally done. Give it a try!
