Mar 13, 2024Aeran Schmid


1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp salt, divided

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp Splendor Garden Organic Cumin Ground

3 cups water

1 cup Splendor Garden Organic Green Split Peas

1 clove garlic, minced


In a medium saucepan, add water and garlic and bring to a boil.

Add the green split peas and return to a boil. Then cover and reduce heat to let simmer for 25 minutes.

Stir in half the salt (1/4 tsp) and cook for another 15 minutes or until the split peas are tender. Once done, drain the water.

In a blender or food processor, add olive oil, salt, lemon juice and cumin ground. Blend until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides in order to fully blend.

Tip: If you don't have a blender or food processor, you can easily mash the peas with a fork.
