Introduction

This is from the book Vegan With a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Very tasty, easy to make, and full of fiber too. Good for a snack or part of a light meal.
I used 2.5 cups of split peas because I had extra, which is a little more than 16 ounces... so the nutritional info is SLIGHTLY higher for mine than what is listed here.

    I kept coming back in the living room to check the recipe, and realized that I actually had that book somewhere. Dug it out and found lots of others to make.
