Prince Caspian Split Peas

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by dicentra

This was just called Caspian split peas, but I couldn’t resist changing the name. The peas take awhile to cook, so be patient. It’s worth it! This dish is stew like. You can also add ¼ onion chopped and use brown rice instead of the barley. Serve with some good grainy rolls. It is very filling.

Not only is it good, good for you, easy to make (it didn't take too long for the peas to cook), but the colors are beautiful to look at (hope tho photo captures that -- it's the first time I've posted a picture). Surprisingly, it didn't even need a lot of added spice to taste good. Thanks for a great recipe.
