    Well, can I use Canadian green or yellow split peas?

    • Pusle Pledge

      Canadian dry peas will work just fine! 🙂

    The cooking times in the recipe add up to 68 or more minutes, but the “COOK TIME” indicated is 20 minutes. I don’t see how that work for dried peas.

      Hi Questy, some steps in the instructions are included in “prep time” vs. “cook time.” Let us know if you have any more questions!
