Eat Your Peas, Love Your Lentils

Last December 21, 2013, I was lucky to be part of a media event which recipes creatively using peas and lentils were demonstrated by Filipino Master Chef Ojie Reloj at a media event.

Chef Ojie is an architect by trade so he knows to meld function and beauty while emphasizing the importance of using local resources, which he also does in his cooking. Some of the recipes he loves include Lentils a la Mongo (prepared the same way as mongo, using lentils as a healthy mongo replacement), Lentils or yellow split peas empanaditas, and Lentils and Pesto Macaroni Soup.

Because of their high nutrient content, peas and lentils are recommended for everyone. They are the smart alternatives for a healthier, beneficial life. This is one of the best health advices: eat your peas, love your lentils!

Easycook peas, lentils, and beans are what Filipinos need for a fit and healthy lifestyle as they are rich in protein, fiber, antioxidants, folate (iron), and calcium. Easycook variants include yellow and green split peas, lentils, great Northern beans, pinto beans, and light red kidney beans and are available in leading supermarkets like SM, Robinson’s, Shopwise, Rustan’s, and Metro Gaisano.

Easycook peas, lentils, and beans are distributed in the Philippines by Ideal Macaroni and Spaghetti Factory Inc. For more information, please go to their website http://www.idealmacaroni.com.
