Well I ate almost the whole pot by myself >.< This was quick and easy to throw together. The spice mixture was perfect. Cardamom can be touchy, but it works very well here. I did have to add more rice to mine. I also threw in some chopped carrots as I like a thicker soup. Yum!

  1. Rinse the peas.
  2. Put them in a soup pot with 3 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 45-60 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, saute the onions and garlic in olive oil until onions are translucent.
  5. Mix in the spices and saute for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Set aside.
