Do I have to soak yellow split peas before cooking?

Similar to red lentils, it is not essential to soak yellow split peas before cooking. The legumes can be cooked by simply boiling them in a covered saucepan for 20 minutes or until they are tender.

We do recommend rinsing yellow split peas before boiling them to remove excess starch or dirt particles.

Are yellow split peas a good source of protein?

Yellow split peas are naturally high in plant protein and other essential nutrients like fibre and potassium.

Just 100 grams of yellow split peas can provide 25 grams of complete protein.
