Split Pea Soup

  • 150g (3/4 cup) split peas
  • 7 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 potato, shredded
  • 1 tsp fenugreek seeds, ground
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  1. In a food processor, pulse split peas into smaller chunks (see note).
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to medium-low and let simmer for 40-45 minutes or until the peas have mostly dissolved.
  4. Process with an immersion blender until smooth.
Note: I used the peas from a tube of Manischewitz split pea soup and threw out the "soup mix."
