Here’s an easy and healthy back-to-school snack!
Crunchy Yellow Pea Poppers
- 1 C yellow split peas
- 1 T olive oil or butter
- salt and pepper, or other seasonings as desired
Begin by placing the split peas in a large bowl and covering them with cool water. You’ll want them to be covered by at least 1 inch of water. Allow the peas to sit, hydrating, for 4 hours. Then, rinse and drain.
Pat the peas dry with a tea towel and then warm a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter or olive oil and then, add the peas about 1/3 of them at a time, to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper and sauté over medium heat for 5-7 minutes until lightly browned and crunchy. Repeat with the remaining peas.
Cool and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
