scrumptious! - we could not give up eating it. I only gave it 4 stars since i did not stick to the recipe exactly however i labored using what I'd on hands. I made use of 2 garlic clove, 2 celery, 2 carrot, a mixture of onion & leek to create 2 cups, 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed & no potato, bay leaf & a little bit of kombu, salt & pepper. I sauteed the veggies then added the dry split peas (2 1/2 cups) - did not wish to deal w/ cleaning 2 containers. In the finish I required some advice from "101cookbooks" split pea recipe. I added fresh lemon juice from in regards to a 1/2 of the lemon (to taste) & that actually punched in the flavors. Then to every bowl I sprinkled on some smoked paprika which gave it that wonderful smokey flavor. It was an enormous hit among non- veggies!
Hands lower, the very best vegan split pea soup Ive ever endured. I adopted almost towards the tee. Aside from: - I made use of vegetable stock, not plain water - I cooked the tomato plants (small yellow ones cause thats things i had), as opposed to a topping - no sesame oil (I simply couldnt get it done) - I added just a little ditalini pasta, cause apparantly I made use of an excessive amount of liquid. (Hoestly didnt even measure)
This is extremely good. I've always loved pea soup, and the thought of using dried mustard along with the sesame oil really attracted me. The only real factor that may put someone off may be the smell if this's cooked, that is normal. As well as the sesame oil balances it. It freezes perfectly. And That I love the taters!
