Cheap, filling and packed with yummy goodness. It does require a little bit of advanced thinking though. Split peas are best soaked in water overnight. I just add 1 cup of yellow split peas to 3 cups of water in a sealed container and pop in the fridge the night before.
•300grams pumpkin, peeled and cut into cubes
•1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes
•2 tablespoons of olive oil
•2 teaspoons of curry powder
•3 cups of veggie stock
•1 cup of yellow split peas, soaked over night
In a large saucepan/pot, fry off the pumpkin & sweet potato in olive oil until golden on the outside.
Add the curry powder and cook for a further minute.
Add the stock & rinsed split peas. Bring to the boil and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
Serve with mash potato or rice. You can also add a little cream or plain yoghurt to taste.
From Jos with love. xx
