Recipe Ingredients for Split pea soup

225 g Peas, Split, Mature Seeds Cooked, Boiled, Without Salt
10 g vegetable stock cube
1 1/2 litre water
1 medium onion
1 sweet potato
3 carrots

Recipe Directions for Split pea soup

  1. Soak yellow split peas in cold water overnight then rinse in a sieve. Place the soaked peas in a large saucepan and cover with 1.5 litres of cold water. Add the stock cube. Bring to the boil and simmer for 40 minutes, removing any froth with a large spoon.

  2. Halfway through the cooking period, add the vegetables and continue simmering for a further 20 minutes until the peas and vegetables are very tender, stirring occasionally.

  3. Remove from the heat and cool for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer to a food processor or liquidiser (the liquid will be hot so avoid splashes) and blend until smooth (you can also use a stick blender for this job). Return to the pan and heat through gently, stirring regularly. (Add more water if the soup appears to be too thick for your taste.)
