Yellow Split Peas are part of the legume family. When ripe they are husked and split in half. Split peas are pale yellow in color and about ¼ of an inch wide with a mild flavor and soft texture. The Yellow Split Pea has more of an earthy flavor making it more flavorful than the whole dried pea. Similar to the lentil in versatility in cooking and in nourishment, it has been used for centuries as a food staple that was easily available and low cost. Greek and Roman civilizations relied on dried peas as an essential ingredient in their diets. Peas began to be split during the time of ancient Egypt and have been found in Egyptian tombs.

Ingredient Statement:

Yellow Peas.

Commonly used in soups and stews because the peas break apart when cooking and add to the texture. Yellow Split 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.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Yellow Split Peas should not be soaked before cooking. Cook in boiling water for 45-60 minutes. The longer this legume cooks, the more it will break down and cause soups to thicken.
