Chickpea & Pea Protein Masala

We love masala. This masala blend is a healthier version to our classic masala, using pea protein instead of coconut cream. The pea protein adds a creaminess to the sauce and with the chickpeas as well it is a super protein hit.

It’s fairly mild, so if you prefer your masala hot… add extra chillis 🙂 Couple with plain rice fo a simple and quick, healthy vegan meal.
