Pesto really does make everything taste better.  Anything that has a low flavor profile – pasta, potatoes, bland sandwiches –  is instantly better with pesto.  But split peas?  Leave it to 101 Cookbooks to make these homely, chalky legumes exciting and fresh with cilantro pesto.  It’s further made intriguing with crunchy toasted pumpkin seeds, a textural and toasty contrast.  I have a new appreciation for split peas, they’re not just soup to me.
