2. Add the garlic, split peas and millet and stir in for 1 minute and add the seasonings.

3. Fill the pot with the water ( I prefer to start with 2 cups of boiling water to de glaze the bottom on the pot) then add the rest of the water. Bring the water to a boil and then set on a low flame. 40min – 1 hour until split peas fall apart. add additional salt / pepper to taste

4. Add the lemon juice and frozen peas, let it boil for 3 more minutes and then serve with cilantro or parsley.
