Split Pea Soup: It practically makes itself

“Peas porridge hot,

Peas porridge cold,

Peas porridge in the pot

Nine days old”

Interpret this obscure British nursery rhyme how you will. Yes, pea soup is delicious when served hot. Cold pea soup is super gross. Also, I hope it really doesn’t take you nine days to finish this. It usually disappears pretty quick at my house. If you are looking for a pureed dish that tastes like real food and is filling, look no further than split pea soup.

    Anemia is common among the elderly. One third of anemia cases among the elderly is related to nutritional deficiencies, one half of which is related to a deficiency of iron.

    One serving of split peas contains 48% of the recommended daily amount of iron. 

    One serving of split peas also contains 55% of the recommended daily amount of potassium and 200% of the recommended daily amount of dietary fiber, both of which are very important for aging populations.

    This makes the smoothest purees on planet earth!
