Peas + Rice
True or false, you can never go wrong with peas and rice?
So TRUE for me!
My one year old eats this all up too! Peas and rice is a staple in the Caribbean and in many other countries mainly because it's cheap and filling.
This is often served as a side dish, but I like to have this as a small meal with avocado and pepper sauce .
This combo is a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Be sure to soak peas/beans and cook thoroughly (or you can purchase canned to make life easier. Improperly cooked peas can contain toxins and impair the absorption of nutrients. .
