My daughter-in-law introduced me to Curried Split Pea Soup and I have loved eating it over the past several years. The sweet potato adds a savory sweetness to the soup. The serving size is 2 cups and yields approximately 150 calories.
1 . Saute' the onions in olive oil at medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and spices. Saute' 2 more minutes
Add the water and stir well. Add the split peas and sweet potato. Cover and bring to a boil.
Bring heat back down to medium; let soup simmer for about an hour, until peas are tender. Grate in the carrot (if using) and serve. Garnish with fresh cilantro if you choose.

Note: I personally add a dash of Liquid Smoke for an essence of smoke.
