Swedish yellow split pea soup was a favorite in my home growing up: cheap and simple for my mother to put together, and a dish all of us (brother, sister, me, Dad) were happy to gobble up. Yellow is mellow in the world of split peas, and we balked the few times Mom had to substitute the green variety.
I posted my own version of yellow split pea soup years ago, and after sharing my red lentil kefta recipe the other week (in case you missed it, it is akin to falafel, but made with split red lentils), I had a lightbulb moment: why not do something similar with yellow split peas? I could not think of a reason, and I am so glad.
