Here is my version of Green Split Pea Soup. Great winter dish with rolls or sandwich, hope you will like it.
1 C green split peas
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 large onion peeled and chopped
2 small carrots,chopped
1 medium potato,peeled and chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
6 C chicken stock
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp curry powder
salt and pepper to taste
Wash and drain peas. Set aside
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, add onions,carrots,potatoes and peas.
Add chicken stock. Bring to a boil then simmer on medium heat until peas are tender, stirring occasionally in case they stick to the bottom of the pan. Add more stock if necessary.
Transfer soup to a blender. Purée the soup working in batches. Make sure to fill the blender halfway if the soup is too hot, hold down the lid using a kitchen towel while blending.
Return soup to the pot and heat to serve. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Ladle soup into bowls, garnish with sour cream or Greek yoghurt.
