Cream of yellow split pea soup

by | Mar 17, 2023 | Soups

Yellow split peas are a nutritious and versatile food that can be a healthy addition to a balanced diet. They are a good source of plant-based protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. They are also low in fat and calories. One of the benefits of yellow split peas is their high fiber content, which can help promote digestive health. Split peas contain complex carbohydrates, which provide sustained energy and can help regulate blood sugar levels.

In Hungary yellow split peas are usually used for making főzelék (vegetable stew), however, split pea soup is also a comforting and nourishing dish, that you can enjoy during colder months. The following recipe calls for split peas, carrots and potatoes, which are puréed and enriched with heavy cream. The hot soup is served with spicy croutons.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
