Green soup

i recently discovered that split peas a) are delicious b) don’t take very long to cook and c) have four times the protein that green or brown lentils do. this is great, because they’re also wicked cheap, especially if you buy them in bulk. here’s one thing you can do with them! this recipe ends up being like 75 cents a serving (i have dyscalculia though so that could be a little off).

this recipe calls for:

  • 1.5 cups uncooked green split peas (makes 3 cups cooked)
  • 1 can of lentils (any kind you like; i used brown)
  • six cups of vegetable stock (i made mine from a no msg mix i got at the bulk food store)
  • one big carrot, diced
  • one big onion, diced
  • three big cloves of garlic, minced (you can use a tablespoon of pre-minced garlic out the jar if you don’t want to bother with cutting your own)
  • a bunch of spinach. i used fresh, but honestly it’s better if you get those big frozen blocks from the frozen vegetable aisle. they’re usually around a dollar or two for 500 grams. use at least one block. let thaw beforehand.
  • 1 tbsp of olive, canola, or vegetable oil
  • ground coriander, 1 tsp (if you want; it adds a certain something but isn’t strictly necessary)
  • salt and pepper to taste

cook split peas: 1:3 ratio of peas to water, bring to boil, simmer until tender. if you want to, you can skim off the foam as the peas cook, but you don’t have to. (fyi the foam is the product of phytic acid, the stuff that makes you fart. removing it during the cooking process can, ahem, mitigate this effect.) drain and set aside.

sautée onion in oil in a large saucepan/pot until the onion is tender and translucent. add carrot and broth/stock, heat through. when the carrots are tender, add the lentils, garlic and cooked split peas. add spinach. add coriander (if applicable) allow to sit on medium heat for an additional five minutes. you can have this over/with quinoa, rice or pasta (i am a fan of whole wheat fusilli).

for me (5'6", 165 lbs) this made 5 or six servings. you may find that it makes more or less for you depending on how much food you need. this freezes pretty well, so you can store it for later either in the freezer or fridge.

enjoy!
