So simple and so good! I could only find dry split peas, so the peas took far less time to cook and came out looking like green mashed potatoes. Ugly dish, but it was so delicious to make up for it. Instead of carrots, I mixed in some chopped, fried BACON at the end. Despite the simplicity, this is one of those rare vegetable side dishes that is capable of outshining a main course.
