wow...that sounds good. the only protein i can get here is pulses (and nuts...but the hips don't like 'em so much), and i have found split peas loose in the supermarket. i think i might make this at the weekend...sounds good as!

i need to start cooking 'real' food...i've been really bad about just eating random-things-on-bread and i'm starting to feel sluggish...

This sounds delicious and right up my alley, however, I'm having a bit of trouble understanding what it means to mix for a couple hours in same amout of water thats been boiled.
