Peas, Yellow Split are an occasional vegan pantry ingredient that we primarily use in making curried pea soups. It’s a member of the bean (legume) family. See more about them below.
More About Yellow Split Peas:
These 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 the green and this variety 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. We could not find specific detailed nutritional information for yellow split peas.
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
