Yellow Split Peas


4 cups water

1 cup dried yellow split peas

olive oil

1/2 small onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 inch of fresh ginger peeled, finely chopped

1/2 tsp ground turmeric



Place 3 cups water (or a stock if you wish) and the yellow split peas in a large saucepan and bring to a boil on high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until most of the water has absorbed, about 40 minutes.

In the meantime, saute your onion until clear, 5 minutes. Then add ginger, garlic, and turmeric and cook 1 minute.   Add to the cooked peas.  Add a little more water and simmer again until the peas are very soft.  Add salt to taste
