Organic Green Split Peas make warming comfort food.
These organic green split peas are similar to organic yellow split peas and can be used in recipes in the same way. The main difference is that green split peas have a stronger flavour and are better suited to recipes that have that hearty ‘beany’ taste. If you want a milder, sweeter taste in a recipe such as dahl then go for our organic yellow split peas. In the end it all comes down to personal preference, but you can’t go wrong with either!
Whether you like making curries or casseroles, organic green split peas are a great base for any one pot meal. These delicious peas are really versatile and give a good nutritional boost to vegan and vegetarian diets as they are a source of protein. Just one 90g serving is high in Thiamin (B1), Folate, Potassium and Manganese.
Split peas belong to the same family as lentils and beans. They are harvested freshly, then dried and the skins removed. The peas split on their own after they are skinned and dried which makes them quick to cook but impossible to sprout.
There is no need to soak split peas, but if you soak and drain them you can reduce the phytate content (the same goes for all beans and pulses).
