There is nothing like a hearty, delicious soup in a cold day! But the day does not have to be cold to have this tasty and very easy to make treat! We love it and it is so easy to make, once you've tried it, you will make it more than once! This soup tastes different from our previous split pea recipe. Enjoy!
1 cup split peas
1 cup sweet squash, peeled and cubed
1 sprig parsley
1/4 cup chopped sweet green or red peppers or seeded Anaheim peppers
1/4 tsp. powdered coriander
Salt to taste
1 tbsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. sweet paprika powder
2 bay leaves
Optional: 1/2 cup soy milk to add little by little as liquid is needed
Put all the ingredients in a pot with 3 cups of water over medium fire and cook, adding water every now and then, as needed, till the split peas are soft. Test by taking one with a spoon. If soft. Let cool a little bit and process in the blender till smooth. Serve with rice, mashed potatoes or baked yams as a side dish. Add a good bread and a nice salad. Delicious!
