Yellow Split Pea Soup With Collard Greens and Yams

Yellow Split Pea Soup

This is adapted from Color Me Vegan by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  We liked it very much.

Saute in a large soup pot on med-low for 5 min:

  • 2 T water (more if it starts to dry out)
  • 2 yellow onions

Add, turn heat to low and cook 5 min:

  • 1 T minced fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Add and simmer until peas are tender, 1 hour:

  • 2 T curry powder
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1/2 t ground mustard
  • 1/2 t turmeric
  • 1 medium sweet potato (yam), unpeeled, 1/2″ dice
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
  • 8 c veg stock
  • 3 c dried yellow split peas

Add and cook 10 min:

  • 1 bunch collard greens, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste.  You can thicken the soup by pureeing a few cups of it before adding the greens.
