Golden Split Pea Soup
80 mins (prep 20, cooking 60)
15 ingredients
6 servings
This is from my Low-Fat Moosewood cookbook. Your house will smell like an Indian restaurant! The soup is a beautiful dark gold color. Don’t use green or brown lentils, it just won’t be the same. This makes a lot, but you can freeze it. Even my one year old loves this! Serve topped with plain yogurt and chopped cilantro. Pass pita bread.
