Split peas

 Split peas Key facts A great source of protein, split peas are used to make pease pudding and pea soup, rather than fresh peas. The peas are round when harvested and dried, then the seeds split open to give a faster cooking time.

These halved dried peas can be deep green or golden-yellow. I think the green ones are superior in flavour, but both are suitable for thick, warming pea soups, or for purées or cutlets.
