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.

Ingredients

  • 1 lbs. split peas
  • 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 clove garlic
  • 1 med. onion
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 tbs. fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 8 c. water
  • 1 sweet potato

Directions

1 . Saute' the onions in olive oil at medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and spices. Saute' 2 more minutes

  1. Add the water and stir well. Add the split peas and sweet potato. Cover and bring to a boil.

  2. 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.
