About this Recipe
(By Katie Mae, Taken from ForksOverKnives.com)
- 2 cups green split peas
- 8 cups water
- 2 cups cauliflower, chopped
- 2 carrots, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon coriander
- 1 tablespoon garlic granules
- ½ teaspoon curry
- ½ teaspoon garam masala
- In a large soup pot with a lid, bring the split peas and the water to a boil.
- Then reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
- In a sauté pan, sweat* the cauliflower, carrots, and onions until the cauliflower starts to brown and the onions become translucent, stirring frequently.
- If the veggies start to stick to the bottom of the pan, add a little water as needed.
- Then add the spices and cook for a couple more minutes, stirring frequently.
- Pour the veggies into the split peas.
- Let the soup simmer for 30 minutes, or until it reaches your desired consistency.
*Sweating is a mix of sautéing and steaming. The idea is that the veggies “sweat” (release some of their natural water), creating enough moisture to soften and steam them in their own juices without adding any liquid.
To sweat, cut veggies, place them in a dry sauté pan over medium heat. Stir frequently until the desired consistency is reached, covering the pan when not stirring.
