I did not realize how many health benefits pea plants have to offer. For instance pea plants contain 8 times more folic acid than bean sprouts, 7 times more vitamin C than blueberries, and 4 times more vitamin A than tomatoes! Why take a multivitamin tablet when you can eat this delicious vegetable?
