DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat and saute the onion until soft and translucent.
  • Add the stock and bring to a boil. Add the split peas, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add the rice, partially cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Stir the flour into the kefir (or yogurt). Add the egg. Gradually whisk 2 cups of the hot soup into the kefir, then stir the kefir back into the soup pot.
  • Add the spinach, salt and sugar and simmer over low heat until the rice is tender, about 10 more minutes. Do not boil or the kefir will curdle.
  • Add the scallions, cilantro, dill and mint and simmer, stirring constantly, or 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat. Sprinkle a little bit of ground sumac on each serving.
