We've been inspired by No Meat May - a community driven initiative asking people to remove meat from their diet in the name of four important factors - personal health, animal welfare, the environment and food equity.
Give this recipe a shot and we've no doubt you'll be extremely happy with the results :)
Olive oil (to heat the pan)
1 kg yellow split peas
2 cups carrots (diced)
1 cup tomatos (diced)
1/2 cup onion (diced)
Small knob ginger (crushed)
1 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander seed
1/2 bunch coriander (chop the root and save the leaf as garnish)
8 cups of water
Salt and pepper (to season)
Sourdough bread (optional - to serve)
Heat the saucepan with olive oil, adding the diced onions, ginger, tumeric, garam masala, coriander seeds and the root of the coriander. Simmer until the onion is translucent.
Add the split peas and water and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
Add diced carrot and tomato and simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes, adding a little more water if you want a thinner soup.
Season with salt and pepper and serve with a garnish of coriander and a side of sourdough bread.
