Seven soups every Saturday: split pea soup recipes
What's budget-friendly, nutritious, easy to cook and comes in your choice of colors? Split peas! High in fiber and potassium, split peas keep for months in the pantry in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. One pound sells for less than $2, and will make 4-6 large portions of soup. Best of all, both green and yellow splits cook quickly, with no presoak required; they break down on their own after less than an hour of stovetop cooking to form a chunky, satisfying potage, and they're great in the slow cooker, too. Split pea soup can go smoky or spicy, flavored with curry or chipotle or rosemary. There's no more comforting soup in the cold days of winter.
