Split Pea “Cheese”


I love making various “cheeses” to eat with my gluten free, soy free, corn free pasta.  And not being biased t all, I really do think that these cheeses leave so much room for exciting flavours and exciting dishes.

Anyway, here’s the recipe.


1 cup cooked yellow split peas

1/2 red onion, chopped

1 clove garlic

1 tsp turmeric powder or 1/2 tsp minced turmeric root

nutritional yeast (optional)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp lime juice

salt to taste,


Blend all ingredients until creamy. Taste and adjust salt, making it a bit saltier than you would.

If using it as a dip, do not make it salty, unless this is the way you like it.
