    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    I like to put this in a gift basket with: Beer Bread Mix, Cornbread Mix or Corn Fritters and Cajun Nuts or Whole Roasted Walnuts. (I am in the process of adding these to the files also.)

    List of Ingredients

    1 c split peas, divided
    1/2 c. lentils
    1/2 c red lentils*

    *This recipe calls for 1 c. split peas and 1 c. lentils; divide that quantity among several colors if you can find them. If not, just use gree split peas and brown lentils. I can usually find various colors at health food stores or larger grocery stores.

    Seasoning Packet:
    1 Tbls. dried parsley flakes
    1 tsp. dried minced garlic
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. sage
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder


    Make and attach the following recipe as an attractive tag:

    1. Empty jar into a colander, pick over peas and rinse well.
    2. Place in a large pan with & cups water.
    3. Bring to a boil. Lowerheat, cover and simmer
    1 hour, stirring occasionally. For a thicker
    soup,remove cover for the last 15 minutes.

    Tasty option: Add 1 lb. chopped ham.
