A freind of mine, who is a total health freak (in the making)approached me with an interesting question today. We both eat these roasted green peas that we get from Sprouts Farmers Market, they are roasted with non hydrogenated canola oil and salt.
So he asks me "what if i rinsed these peas in water for a few seconds just to remove the oil? Do you think it would reduce the fat content?" He said after he did it the texture was the same and still maintained there crunch. In other words, they were still edible and not all mushy like i thought they would be. So what do you guys think? Can you actually wash off oil from foods like this to decrease fat content?
