The preparation method also includes frying. What does the recipe provide? The recipe is based on green dried peas, peas are legumes, hence they are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber and important minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron and zinc, which are necessary for the proper functioning of the body. The complex carbohydrates in legumes combined with the soluble fiber, contribute to the creation of a prolonged feeling of satiety. Dietary fiber on the other hand is mainly of the soluble type and therefore helps in balancing blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Advantages of the recipe: vegan, low-fat, suitable for both diabetics and pre-diabetics, easy to prepare and most importantly ... delicious!
