Yellow Split Peas
(Peas, Yellow Split)  Yellow split peas are not commonly found in the United States, but they are quite popular in Northern Europe and other parts of the world.  Some larger supermarkets carry yellow split peas in the ethnic food section, where they are usually sold in 1-pound plastic bags.  They are almost always found in health food stores, where they are sold unpackaged in bulk bins.  Both green and yellow split peas, have an advantage over dried beans: they are as nutritious as beans, but they do not need to be soaked before they're cooked, that is, unless they have been stored for a long time.  For this reason, it is best to buy yellow split peas from a store that has a high turnover of their stock. The photo to the left shows the actual size of the yellow split peas.  We could not find specific detailed nutritional information for yellow split peas.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
