This class focuses on nutrient-rich dried seeds, such as peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas. These powerhouses are high in protein, fiber, minerals, and B-vitamins. Like their cousins in the legume family, they are nitrogen-fixing crops that actually improve the environment. And, on top of it all they are economical, shelf-stable, easy to cook, and grown in the Canadian Prairies. Improving your diet is easy when you incorporate these superfoods! Here are a few ways to prepare them.
- Brown Butter Kabuli Chick Peas Hummus with Parsley and Smoked Paprika Oil
