I saw this recipe when I watched Alton Brown on Food Network. I changed the recipe a bit to make it vegan (original included chicken broth and butter).

Loved this recipe! My curry had a little spiciness to it, it really hit the spot on a cold night!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and a generous pinch of salt and sweat for 2 to 3 minutes. Next, add the garlic and continue to sweat for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, making certain not to allow onions or garlic to brown.
  2. Add the peas, vegetable broth and curry powder. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook at a simmer until the peas are tender and not holding their shape any longer, approximately 45 to 50 minutes.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Using care and a stick blender, puree the soup until the desired consistency. Watch out for hot splatters.
