Vegan MoFo VI, Day 15 - Mike Makes Monday Meals - Yellow Split Pea Soup
Today I showed Mike how to make the Yellow Split Pea Soup from Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food. This was one of my favourite recipes during testing - I loved it so much that I copied it from the forum because I knew I'd want to make it again before I got my tester copy. I don't even know how many times I've made it since testing.
The beauty of this recipe, and the reason why I showed Mike how to make it, is that it has very few ingredients and you just bung them all in the pan. There's no sauteing of things and then adding a few more things and then a bit more. You just chuck it all in, get it boiling, then simmer until it's done. Even if it sticks to the pan, it comes off once it starts to cool. It's also easy to modify by adding extra veg - I usually add in some kind of leafy green (spinach or chard) and cauliflower.
Mike thought it was really easy to make as well. Of course it was incredibly tasty, as per usual. I think I've mentioned this before, but this is probably my favourite split pea soup recipe of all time. I think it's better than the one in Appetite for Reduction. It's just really, really delicious. I kinda want another bowl.
