About our Split Peas:
These hearty beautiful green split peas are packed with flavor, fiber and protein. We grow the Aragorn Variety peas which we believe are the king of all split peas. These peas provide the taste and aroma of the split pea soup you ate around your grandmothers table. Our green split peas are a beautiful dark green and uniform in size. Our cleaning process polishes the dry split peas with steam to create the beautiful shine you see on the outer coat of the pea when you open our bags.
How to Cook Green Split Peas:
These dried split peas don't plump in size when you cook them. Place a cup of split peas in a pot with 3 cups of water and bring to boil. Then turn to simmer for 30-40 minutes until tender. Some people make the mistake of cooking split peas and other beans with salt in the water. Do not make this mistake - salt will harden the outer coat so they don't soften. Always add your salt and seasonings after the beans have reached the desired consistency.
Split Pea Soup Recipe:
Here is our famous Split Pea Soup recipe that we are excited to share with you.This a great vegan and gluten free soup - perfect for any gathering!
2 cups Palouse Brand split peas
3 quarts water
1 cup vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
1 large onion chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 cups shredded carrots
4 stalks celery chopped (I like to use this inside leafy pieces too)
Salt and pepper to taste
Add rinsed peas, water and broth to a large pot. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. sauté onion, garlic, carrots and celery in olive oil until soft. Add sauté ingredients to the A4soup pot. Cover and simmer for 4-5 hours until peas are tender and liquid has cooked down. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To get a smooth texture place cooked soup in a blender to puree ( caution – for most ordinary blenders you will need to puree in very small batches or let the soup cool before pureeing).
What makes Palouse Brand Green Split Peas Special?
