Both Bob and I loved this dip… spread… dish… recipe. It can be enjoyed in so many ways. Bob said that it reminded him of egg salad. For me, it reminded me of sweet peas and brussels sprouts. lol I am always the logical one. But in the end, the general consensus was that it tasted great!
I have been craving peas like there is no tomorrow. So much that I had to investigate why. Did you know that green peas are a powerhouse of nutrients? These little green emeralds are full of micronutrients, fiber and protein. Every time my teeth bear down and pierce the skin of those baby peas, I break out in a ninja-super-hero-move. Ok, maybe not literally but in my mind’s-eye I do and that alone is enough to entertain me. :) They are rich in fiber, iron and Vitamin C, all of which helps to strengthen the immune system. Green peas have been found to aid in energy production, nerve function and carbohydrate metabolism. This is just to name a few reasons why peas are a great thing to “crave”! With each green-pearl-pea-popping bite, I am going to smile in good health! I am especially claiming their energy boosting properties, I mean… who doesn’t need that?!
Brussel sprouts came into the picture when I spied a bag of baby brussels sprouts at the store. Put the word “baby” in front of anything, and I am all over it. They too are high in fiber and protein. And lets not forget that they are also loaded with vitamin A, folacin, potassium, calcium. So, I am going to go out on a limb and say that this recipe is filled with wonderful nutrients. I mean really, I have only talked about two ingredients and look what has come from that?
Looking for a yummy way to enjoy this dip… serve it on my
