Introduction

Protein packed and perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner, this is a variation on the Whole Foods recipe by the same name. They called for a 16 oz bag of split peas... mine was 20, so I modified the recipe to make it work! I also used red instead of yellow onion, and used thyme in place of bay (because I was out).
