Vegan Scotch Eggs

Vegan Scotch Eggs

Kidney beans are high in both protein, fibre and slow-release carbs which keep blood sugar levels from spiking. Some other bean benefits are vitamin K1 – important for blood coagulation, folate – more commonly known as folic acid which is important during pregnancy – you could say – healthy eggs for healthy eggs!
