Healthy Vegan Split Peas Recipe

What you need: 

1 cup yellow split peas
1 piece kombu, optional
3 sunburst zucchini, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon dill
1 tablespoon chives, chopped (or green onion)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, optional
sea salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Split peas do not need to be soaked before cooking, but if you like to it doesn't hurt to soak them for an hour. Add enough water to cover the peas by 2".
2. Gently boil them with no salt. You can add a bit of kombu to the cooking water while they boil for improved digestibility. Split peas will take about 30 minutes to cook.
3. Add vegetables to a baking dish. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over them, then stir them to coat with hands. Next, sprinkle a pinch salt and mix that over the vegetables as well.
4. At this point, you can put them in the oven until the peas finish cooking and the vegetables soften slightly. If you like your carrots soft, put them in on their own first as they will take longer to cook than the zucchini.
5. Add the dill, chives and nutritional yeast (if using) with the split peas and stir in the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper, and put the whole thing back in the oven for 10 minutes, until the vegetables are softened to your liking.

very, very good! We loved it. I didn't have sunburst zucchini, so I used 2 green zucchini and 1 yellow zucchini. I also added about 4 small red potatoes. And I didn't have chives. I couldn't find an oven temp anywhere on here or on your website, but you did mention it in the video - 350, and thats what I would have thought. But my veggies took FOREVER to cook, and I even cut them smaller than yours shown in the video. I raised the temp to 400 for a bit, until I added the split peas, then lowered it back down to 350. My split peas were a little watery/mushy, and that helped cook the veggies more because of boiling. Anyway. Overall, this was a really tasty and healthy dish. I will make again! and I checked out your website and plan on using lots of the yummy recipes on there too! :D Thank you!
