  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 tsp cumin

  • In a pot with a lid, combine the split peas and vegetable broth or water, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 1 hour.
  • Sweat the cauliflower, carrots, and onions in a sauté pan, stir occasionally, till the cauliflower begins to brown and even the onions become translucent. (See note)
  • Then add the spices and cook for a couple more minutes, stirring frequently. Pour the veggies into the split peas.
  • Allow 30 minutes for the soup to simmer, or until it achieves the texture. Ready to serve! (See note)


  • If the vegetables begin to stick to the bottom of the pan, add a splash of water.
  • The longer the soup cooks, then the more split peas disintegrate and the soup will become creamier.
