Organic Split Green Peas


Organic split green peas offer the advantage of quicker cooking than dried whole peas while maintaining their protein and fiber rich qualities. Split green peas offer plant based protein, fiber, and a slightly sweet, earthy flavor to soups, side dishes and roasted snacks.


The history of dried green peas can be traced back thousands of years. Green peas, also known as field peas or dry peas, have been cultivated and consumed in various regions around the world, particularly in Europe, Asia, and North America.

Dried peas are a legume and valued as an excellent source of dietary fiber, plant-based protein, vitamins, and minerals. They are low in fat and cholesterol-free, making them a healthy addition to a balanced diet.

In terms of uses, split green peas have a slightly sweeter and more earthy flavor than split yellow peas. Split green peas are whole dried green peas that have been mechanically split in half, removing the outer skin. This splitting process allows them to cook faster. Perhaps the most well-known use, split peas are the main ingredient in classic split pea soup. It’s a hearty and comforting soup made with split peas, vegetables (such as carrots, onions, and celery), and often flavored with ham or bacon. Split green peas are also used in mashed peas (similar to mashed potatoes) with herbs and spices added. Mashed or coarsely ground, split green peas can be mixed with spices, onions, and other ingredients to form patties or fritters. These can be fried or baked and served as a tasty snack or appetizer. Split green peas can be used in various curries and stews, adding a nutritious and protein-rich element to the dish.

Split green peas can also be milled into flour. Pea flour is particularly rich in protein, making it a valuable ingredient for those following a plant-based diet. This flour can be added to baked goods, pancakes and smoothies.

Cooked or milled into flour, split green peas have versatile culinary applications. Split green peas offer plant based protein, fiber and a slightly sweet, earthy flavor to soups, side dishes and roasted snacks. The choice depends on the desired texture and the specific recipe you’re preparing.
