Yupik Organic Green Split Peas are dried, split (from whole) vegetables. Like pasta, split peas can be cooked in a pot of boiling, salted water. Green split peas cook for approximately 30-45 minutes, or until tender. Hearty green split peas are mildly sweet in flavor, while tender in texture. Green split peas can be used in soups, stews, salads, and side dishes; they also mash or blend easily to add texture, thickness, and depth to recipes.
