Vegan Split Pea Soup…

on April 28, 2012

Soak one cup of split peas overnight…or longer if you can.

Drain soaking water and rinse the peas well……place the peas in a pot and cover with enough water to fill about one inch above the peas.

Bring the peas to a boil and then turn down to low heat… cover and and let them bathe for about 15 minutes.

Then add…

  • 1/2 a chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 diced yam
  • 1 diced sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of fresh oregano (or a pinch of dried)
  • 1/4 tsp of smoked paprika
  • pinch of sea salt

Let all of the ingredients simmer together until the peas are completely cooked and tender… I tend to cook this for 15 minutes with the lid on and 15 minutes with the lid off.

Great bowl of comfort food on a rainy day… and these split peas are a great source of protein and fibre!  🙂

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
