Healthy, because

Even smarter

Peas shine with lots of B vitamins. Niacin contains and supports energy metabolism. Abundant vitamin C in the peas also protects our cells from free radicals through the antioxidant effect. Those who do not tolerate legumes well, do not have to do without the Orzotto - because compared to chickpeas, peas are easy to digest.

Orzotto makes a great Meal Prep dish and is perfect to take to the office for lunch. It will keep in the refrigerator for two to three days. If you don't like feta, you can also make the recipe with parmesan.
