  6. Cook the patties for five minutes on each side. Add more olive oil to cook the rest of the patties in the same manner.

Black-eyed peas are a great source of protein. On top of that, they also have soluble fibers which aid in lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol.

What is LDL cholesterol? It’s sometimes called the “bad” cholesterol because high LDL level leads to a buildup of plaque in your arteries. This can then lead to coronary artery disease where narrowed arteries slow down or block blood flow to the heart.

You don’t have to sacrifice flavor when you attempt a no-meat diet. With these recipes, your family’s meals can be delicious and healthy at the same time!

If you’re looking for even more ways to add greens into your diet, you may want to consider taking a plant-based supplement. They’re a convenient way to get the nutrition you may be missing out on from your regular diet.
