Curried vegetable soup (vegan)

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1⅓ cup Dried green or yellow split
Peas
¼ teaspoon Turmeric
4 cups Water
1 tablespoon Safflower oil
1 tablespoon Curry powder
½ cup Onion -- chopped
½ cup Carrot -- chopped
½ cup Celery -- chopped
1½ cup Water
14 ounces Can plum tomatoes -- chopped
With liquid

In a large sauce pan, combine peas, turmeric and 4 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until peas are tender, about 1 hour.

Drain.

In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat (note you may need to add up to 2 tablespoons more oil); add curry and cook about 30 seconds. Add onions, carrots and celery; cook 3 minutes. Add peas, 1½ cups water, tomatoes, salt and pepper; cook, covered 10 minutes.

Transfer half the mixture to food processor or blender and puree. Add puree back to soup. Chill. Garnish with cilantro if desired.

This soup freezes well.
