Split peas (used for making split pea soup) are a part of the legume family (that we have spoken so highly about earlier in this article).  They have many nutritional benefits but additionally can be used to create a “comfort food dish” with a thick and creamy texture.  Cooked split peas are a great alternative to flour, margarine, and milk when cooking up a thick and creamy gravy.  The peas have their own deep flavor and can be creatively seasoned.
