Fritter, whero peas and broccoli lunch

I have discovered whero peas which is the Maori name for field peas used as a protein crop for chickens and pigs. It is not heat treated and is a good source of lysine. It is apparently low in fat and rich in protein. Here is what one website says about it:

Grown in NZ. Has a strong peanut flavour. The pigeons discovered how tasty Whero Peas were first and it took us a little longer to cotton on. High in calcium, Iron & Phosphorus. Combine with Blue Pea, toss in olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning, barbque them or bake. Combines well with Feta cheese in salad.

Anyway it doesn't look all that attractive. Here it is for lunch one day with left over protein fritters and broccoli.
