Split peas have been a food staple for thousands of years. Back in 500 BC, it was a common street food in Athens, where vendors would hawk bowls of hot pea soup. Today, the humble split pea is ubiquitous across the world, and a key ingredient in many hearty dishes.
Our split pea dip recipe is both filling and nutritious. Split peas are packed with fiber, and also contain protein, copper phosphorus, B vitamins, potassium and more. Best of all, the flavor is mild, so it’s a great transition food. We encourage you to try letting your little one choose whatever they want to dunk in the split pea dip — heated Pita bread, soft-cooked carrots, and apples are all great options. Giving your little one the freedom to choose what they are going to use to dip is a great way to encourage independence, and allows them to explore the world of food.
