Curried Split Pea Soup

Leave a comment

I simply adore a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter day. My husband does too and I love to make this soup right before he comes home from work. He can walk into a kitchen full of this delicious aroma and I feel like June Cleaver.

This is a recipe from Vegan With A Vengeance and I make this recipe at least once a week. I know a lot of people think of Linda Blair from The Exorcist when they hear “split pea soup,” but hear me out. This soup is fantastic and will absolutely dazzle your taste buds!

It’s also incredibly easy to make! Chop your onion, throw it in the pot and sauté for five minutes. Add your ginger and spices and cook for two minutes. Add your liquid, then your split peas. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Allow to cook for about an hour. I love to serve this over brown rice, so I start a pot of rice at the same time and they’re done together.

When I think of curry, I always think of spicy, but this dish isn’t spicy. Just full of flavor. This is great reheated the next day as well. Everyone in my house loves this soup. The last time I made it, Baby J, my 14 month old, had three bowls of it!! I’m always stunned by how much little boys eat.
