DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium pan bring water and salt to a boil; add split peas and return to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 45 minutes or until tender. Do not drain.
  • Meanwhile, steam vegetables until crisp tender.
  • In a small skillet, cook curry powder, cumin, turmeric, ginger, and red pepper in hot oil for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • In a food processor or blender combine the undrained split peas and the spice mixture. Process until combined. If too thick, add water or warm broth. Transfer back to the medium saucepan and stir in the steamed vegetables. Heat through and serve.
  • FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH--I highly recommend just leaving the split peas in the pan, adding spices, and using an immersion blender! Much simpler, and fewer dishes to wash :).
