7 Sacha inchi

Yes, they do indeed look like peanuts. However, unlike your normal legume, sacha inchi is a complete plant protein. When I first tried it, I had the powder form as a component of a plant protein powder complex.

One-quarter cup of the whole seed yields 8 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and a host of healthy fats. The best part is that if you’re allergic to peanuts, sacha inchi is a safe substitute. Score!
