    UmmBinat's Note:

    This is delicious with a side of fresh salad (baby romaine topped with gourmet black olives & goat milk feta cheese) for a lovely light meal. This is even good without the potatoes, I sometimes add more water in as well. From the Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    bowls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pick over split peas, discarding any that are discoloured. Wash in several changes of cold water.
    2. 2
      Place in a deep pan and add the amount of water stated.
    3. 3
      Put on medium heat and bring to a boil, skimming when necessary. When boiling reduce heat to low and cover pot and simmer gently for one hour without stirring.
    4. 4
      Peel potatoes and cut into small dice leave in some cold water on the side so they do not dicolour.
    5. 5
      In a small pan fry onion in olive oil until lightly flecked with brown.
    6. 6
      Add potatoes, onion and oil to split peas. Cover and simmer for a further hour or until peas and potatoes are very soft. Do not stir during cooking as this can cause scorching.
    7. 7
      When cooked stir in sea salt to taste and puree. (I use a blender).
    8. 8
      Serve in deep plates with lemon wedges to be squeezed to individual taste. Additional olive oil is often drizzled onto the puree. Serve with a side of fresh salad topped with gourmet black olives & feta for a lovely light meal.
    9. 9
      Enjoy!

      This did not work out for me and I am very sorry. The mixture turned out really thick and all I can think of is perhaps the amount of lentils required is incorrect...??
