Spilt peas: baby and grownup versions.

Isn't that an appetizing picture? It tastes better than it looks, trust me.

We just brought a cup of split peas and four cups of water to a boil, then reduced the heat, cover, and simmer for an hour. For Xander, we pulled some out, ran it through the baby food mill and added a bit of breastmilk to runny it up some. For us, we added a tablespoon of veggie bullion and chopped onion (which we normally do before boiling, but didn't want it in Xan's food). While that continued to simmer, we chopped veggie kielbasa and pan fried with lots of red pepper. Finally, we mixed it all together and finished it with pepper and a little salt.

What's veggie kielbasa? Does it have vegetable oil in its contents? I just made a huge pot of split pea soup yesterday which cooked with olive oil because it makes the soup soooo smooth. I know you don't want Xan to eat oil yet.
