You already know how much we love our pasta, especially a simple spaghetti pomodoro! But sometimes you want to feel a little healthier alongside the carbs that you are about to devour.
So on that note! Soya beans, please come to the stage! It’s time you made a special appearance! The Soya bean contains up to 40% protein and has the highest protein content amongst plant products. It is also the only vegetable food that contains all eight essential amino acids!
An appetizing pasta dish with protein! You just can’t go wrong! Yay! A brilliant way to get the kids to eat soya beans as they all love pasta. However, if you wish to disguise the beans, pre boil them and blitz them into a paste and then add to the tomato sauce! Enjoy x
