I like that this recipe called for split yellow peas. I somehow ended up with a gigantic bag of them and haven't touched them in about a year. It also called for split green peas and surprisingly I had to run to the store for those. I was shocked at myself - I'm such a stocker that I was sure I had split green peas somewhere in the cupboard.
I also liked that this recipe had a few fresh ingredients to compliment the dried peas: chopped red pepper, carrots, potato, and frozen green peas. Check out all the veggies in this pic:
Although I cut this recipe down and only used 2/3rd of the ingredients, it still made quite a bit - probably about 6 servings when it should have made 4. (Diane, we have a plate for you in the fridge if you're interested). Here's the final dish served over some brown basmati rice and garnished with some cilantro:
On a separate note, it's come to my attention that someone has stolen a picture from my site and claimed it as their own photo (thank you anonymous commenter) on another site. It's really lame as it isn't too hard to a.) take your own picture or b.) e-mail and ask my permission! I know it's happened to a couple fellow bloggers who have written about it. Has it happened to any of you?
