Directions

  1. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft, 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add ginger, cumin, curry powder, turmeric, coriander and cayenne. Cook, stirring, 1 minute to toast the spices.
  3. Add yellow split peas and 8 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until split peas are soft, about 45 minutes.
  5. Add spinach and salt. Cook until spinach wilts, about 1-2 minutes. Soup will thicken upon standing. Add additional water to thin.
