One of the questions that most vegans absolutely dread is “but… where do you get your protein?”. In fact, vegan diet is very protein rich, you just need to incorporate a few ingredients into your kitchen staples. Some protein rich must-haves are legumes and nuts. And the evergreen vegan favourites are peanut butter and lentils!
To celebrate Veganuary, our friends at Manílife shared with us a delicious recipe that includes both peanut butter and lentils.
As the original creator of the deep roast, they were the first peanut butter brand on earth to start thinking about roasting peanuts the same way master roasters think about coffee. Manílife prides itself on creating flavour through craft (like deeper roast giving deeper flavour), rather than added ingredients.
They source all their peanuts from one farm in Córdoba, Argentina. These peanuts are not only naturally sweeter but as they’re hi-oleic, they’re better for you too. They only use whole peanuts – and never use splits (splits are cheaper but less consistent).
