Curried Split Pea Soup

A little bit of curry heat puts a new twist on this classic split pea soup recipe.


  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chopped onion
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) dried green split peas
  • 5 cups (1.25 L) water or sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) yellow curry powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped


Heat oil in large non-stick stockpot over medium/low heat. Add onion, salt, pepper and garlic. Saute for 1-2 minutes, until onions are tender, not brown.

Add peas, chicken broth and curry powder. Increase heat to high and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until peas are tender, approximately 45-50 minutes. Adjust seasoning as needed. Puree the soup using a blender until desired consistency is reached.
