…And here is my final recipe for the USA Dry Pea and Lentil Council. The giveaway I’ve been promising is at the bottom of this post so make sure you read all the details!
This is obviously not really risotto since risotto is made with rice but it’s prepared the same way and turned out super creamy and risotto-like. My original idea was lentil risotto but what I thought was yellow lentils was actually yellow split peas and I didn’t realize it until they started pretty much melting into each other as I stirred them. It was a happy mistake though because the lentils just wouldn’t have produced the same creaminess.
This tastes like an extra creamy split pea soup which is pretty awesome since I do love my split pea soup. I love the addition of fresh thyme and the Parmesan on top and think both should be added to split pea soup from now on.
Time for the giveaway!
