Simple Yellow Split Pea Soup
The weather forecast is calling for below zero temperatures this weekend here in Maine.
A simple soup simmering on the stove is healthy, inexpensive way to warm up.
Rinse your dry peas (yellow or green)
In a large pan pour 2-3 quarts of fresh water
add peas and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to medium
and add carrots, potato, garlic and onion.
I let this cook on medium for about 15 minutes and then
turn the temperature down to simmer and let it go for a
couple of hours.
Wonderful smells, warms you up and it is good for you!
Yellow split peas are a great source of protein and have only 1 gram of fat
for every 350 calories. They are also high and fiber and make you feel full
