2 tbsp oil
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 stick of celery, finely slice
1 medium carrot, finely sliced
1 tbsp of ground cumin
1 tbsp of ground coriander
2 tbsp of fresh grated ginger
5 cups of vegie chicken stock
2 cups of frozen green peas
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp of fresh chopped mint

method
1. Soak split peas in cold water for 2 hours then drain.

2. In a stock pot sweat onion, celery and carrot until onion goes translucent. Stir in cumin, coriander and ginger. fry up for a minute.

3. Add split peas and stock to pot, simmer for 1 and a 1/2 hours, stiring occasionally, keep the lid on. Add the frozen peas and let sit off heat until the peas are cooked.

4. Blend the soup then add mint, serve with a dollop of tofu sour cream. Yumm!

  1. Sounds delish. I used to love Pea and Ham soup - is this anything like it?

  2. Right now I'm longing for winter. I'm sure it'll be the other way round in winter. Anyway, I'd love to make this soup as soon as it gets cooler.
