- + Ingredients
Green split peas
- + Health Benefits
They are a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, and a very good source of fibre. Dried peas also provide important minerals, B-vitamins and protein.
- + How to use
They are great in the cooler months when fresh peas aren’t available, and are often used to make pea soup or the British pease pudding. A similar alternative is Yellow Split Peas that are used in the same way.
Delicious on a cold winter’s day when cooked with ham hocks and bacon. For a tasty spring dish, try simmering green split peas with sautéed onion and garlic until soft. Purée, chill and top with fresh mint.
And, of course, split pea soup is a traditional and delightful way to enjoy this nutritious legume. In fact, try adding these peas to any vegetable soup for a tasty addition and a punch of protein.
