GREEN SPLIT PEA SOUP

GREEN SPLIT PEA SOUP

 

SPLIT PEA SOUP

This is a very hearty, soul and body satisfying meal.  It scream comfort food to me.  You can use green or yellow peas, whatever you prefer or have on hand.  IT will change the color of the soup but will not effect the flavor. 
Peas, like beans, tend to produce foam while cooking ( it's not harmful),  You can skim the foam with a mesh strainer, otherwise it just gets absorbed into the cooking liquid.
High in protein, fiber and micronutrients green peas are really a superfood. They are are a great source of molybdenum, vitamin K, manganese, thiamin, copper, vitamin C, phosphorous, and folate
