Fun Facts

The health benefits of green peas: * Their calorie content is fairly low, with only 62 calories per 1/2-cup (170-gram) serving. About 70% of those calories come from carbs and the rest are provided by protein and a small amount of fat .

* Green peas are one of the best plant-based sources of protein, which is a major reason why they are so filling, along with their high amount of fiber. Eating protein increases the levels of certain hormones in your body that reduce appetite. Protein works together with fiber to slow digestion and promote feelings of fullness.

* First of all, they have a relatively low glycemic index (GI), which is a measure of how quickly your blood sugar rises after eating a food. Additionally, some studies have found that eating protein-rich foods may be helpful for stabilizing blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Preparation time: 30 minutes


Ingredients:

250 g frozen vegetables ( broccoli, green peas, carrot, bell pepper, corn)

60 g soybean flakes

50 g dry rice

1 onion

1 tbsp oil

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp salt


Optional toppings:

1 tbsp sesame seeds

1 tsp lemon juice


Directions:

To begin, wash the rice under running water. Then put half a cup of rice in a pot and add the same cup amount of water in as well. Preheat the pot on the stove to a boil. Boil rice for 10 minutes. Turn the stove off and place the lid on the pot. Let the rice stew for 10-15 minutes. At the same time, remove the frozen vegetables from the refrigerator. Chop the onion into small pieces. Heat the pan on the stove with oil and when the oil is warm add the onion to the pan. Fry the onion until golden brown. Then add the vegetables and soy flakes to the pan. Stir the vegetables occasionally and allow to cook for another 15 minutes. Add half a teaspoon of salt to the cooked rice and stir with a fork. This makes the rice fluffier. Place the rice in a separate container to cool. When the vegetables are soft, turn off the stove. Season the vegetables with half a teaspoon of salt and nutritional yeast. Take a plate with rice and put delicious vegetables on it. Garnish with sesame seeds and squeeze a little lemon juice on the vegetables. Try eating with chopsticks, it's pretty exciting. Bon Appetit!
