Pasta with Brussel Sprouts, Crunchy Chickpeas & Hemp Seeds
The number one question I get about plant-based diets: But where do you get your protein? Plants are loaded with protein, and this pasta dish is living proof. In fact, just one tablespoon of chickpeas has about 2.5 grams of protein. Hemp seeds pack an even bigger punch, coming in at 5 grams of protein per tablespoon.
The point is this... Plant-based protein is abundant, and there are plenty of creative and delicious ways to have a nutritious, meat-free meal.
