Pigeon peas are a legume, with a remarkable nutritional proteins; protein, dietary fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Not to mention, they’re low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium – making them – like other legumes – a healthy substitution for meats.

Eating legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas, peas), as a source of fibre and plant based protein, may help to keep blood sugars in check, prevent some types of cancers, and support a healthy gut and heart. And if that isn’t enough of a push to enjoy legumes more often, they’re also good for the planet – with a low carbon foot print.
