3/4 Cup Yellow Split Peas
4 Cups Beef Stock
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Whole Grain Tortillas

Method
Heat some oil in a large heavy based Pot, Add the onion and garlic, cook until soft
Add the rest for the veggies, the taco seasoning and paprika, stir to combine

Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat to a simmer for about 20 Min's or until the veggies and split peas are tender
Stir in the herbs
Serve it up in a big bowl with Toasted Whole grain Tortillas cut into wedges
Cooking time 25 Min's eating time 2 Min's
