Eating healthily can feel like an exercise in military planning. The problem made worse when you have children's treats in the house and a packet of biscuits is never far away!
This simple lunch time recipe has ingredients that can be kept in the freezer and kitchen cupboard to be rustled up when you are hungry and haven't restocked the fridge. You can also make it in advance and freeze in a container.

1 mug of dried green split peas
1 mug of frozen green peas
1 stock cube
