Moroccan Style Split Pea Soup

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by Lorac

I found this recipe today at Whole Foods and thought it sounded intriguing. I made one change subbing 1 large onion for 2 leeks. I usually make pea soup with ham but this sounds delicious!

This appears to be an adaptation of B'sarra a Moroccan breakfast soup. It is usually served with a splash of olive oil on top and a pinch of cumin. Increase all the spices except paprika and drop in two thick slices of lemon while cooking. Remove lemon before blending or serving.
