The cultivation of Peas in Europe helped to stave off a famine in England in 1555.

Ingredient Statement:

Yellow Peas.

Commonly used in soups and stews because the peas break apart when cooking and add to the texture. Whole Yellow Peas can also be used to make a nutritious dip or spread. Cook el dente and toss in cold salads or mix with rice & orzo pilafs for a splash of color. Whole Yellow Peas are a delicious alternative for vegetarian dishes and can be used to make a mock cream soup for those with dairy allergies.

Soak overnight. Rinse and cover with fresh water. Bring peas to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes. The longer this legume cooks, the more it will break down and cause soups to thicken.
