Goodbye 2017, hello GREEN!

 

Start the new year off right with this 2-minute vegan addition to any bowl, pasta, or stir-fry. Our Green Pea Pesto has leafy greens, a hint of lemon, and every taste bud’s best friend – garlic. And the star ingredient? Green peas, of course!

 

These small but mighty super veggies are packed with fiber, so you’ll stay full longer. In the meantime, green peas also keep your heart and eye health in check thanks to their abundance of Vitamin A. Told you they were more powerful than they looked!

 

Add a little green to any dish with just 6 simple and fresh ingredients. Simply combine, blend, and lick the bowl clean (hey, no judgements).
