Here's a delicious twist on Split Peas:
ZHIZARAíS LIMA BEAN & SPLIT PEA SOUP
1 Big Hambone or any bone or joint with meat on it or ham hocks I even use Jenni-O turkey ham added at the end sometimes.
Switch meats around for different flavors.
Lots of water
1 C Baby Lima Beans
1 C Split Peas
1 Chopped Onion
2-3 Smashed Garlic Cloves
1 Bay Leaf
Cook. You know what to do.
Donít forget to stir. Both Baby Limas and Split Peas cook quickly enough that they cook together well.
Remove bone when you can push the meat off the bone easily.
Cool and clean up meat, cut coarsely and add back to the pot when the beans are done.
Stir and adjust seasoning when ready to serve.
Whatís especially nice about this soup is the contrast of first tasting the split pea soup, then biting into the soft Baby Limas for a burst of different flavor. YUM.
