Split peas offer significant levels of protein, iron, zinc, and phosphorus.
Split peas are also low in fat.
1 cup split peas – soaked overnights
2 medium sized chopped / diced carrot, mine was 1 large
5-6 diced onions
2 cups frozen peas
2-4 grated potatoes
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp dry chopped onions
1 tbsp nutritional yest
Directions to cook
Add some grape seed oil in a pan. You may also use some water, as an alternative, if you want to avoid oil. Toss chopped vegetables (onions, carrots and peas) into the pan and stir it gently till it turns soft and the onion turns a bit brown in colour.
Cover the pan with a lid so that it will heat and soften quickly.
When ready add 9 cups of water into the pan, the spices, and continue to cook for 10 to 15 min until carrots are soft for easy blend.
Blend the ingredients to achieve a certain overall consistency. Now add soaked split peas and grated potatoes into the pan and mix it well.
If you like your soup thicker then you may add less water. In this recipe I have added 9 cups of water.
Boil until the split pea is soft and then it is ready to serve. It is wonderful what one can achieve with just a few ingredients which are healthy and gluten free! Stay Safe and Eat Healthy !
