Hearts for the heart.
High in fiber with a good chunk of protein and a low glycemic index, low-carb diets and the ones focused on decreasing their inflammations or lowering blood sugar. They do fit in well in so many different dishes like salsas and stews to quiches and casseroles but popular in pizza toppings. Perhaps use corn flours or Masa or Coconut flour to make a base. Do make any thing with love whatever it is. Nothing is healthy made without that written in finger onto your mixing bowl or whispered or held strongly in your HEART.
Some add lemon juice and mayonnaise.
I love them as is.
