Yellow split peas have a sweeter flavour than the green ones and contain both soluble and insoluble fibre. They are also an excellent source of folic acid and thiamin, another B vitamin. and also supply some manganese, potassium, and iron.
Directions for use:
Use 3 measures of cold water to 1 of peas. Place in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Skim off any scum that forms. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for approx 30 mins or until tender. Add salt to taste.
