Split Pea Cauliflower Bisque

December 11, 2014

This simple, elegant soup is so richly flavored, you’ll want it to be the first, main and last course of the meal. Protein-packed, with a wee bit of curry for spice, this soup is the perfect dish for creating strong digestion.

Makes 4-5 servings

Ingredient List:

  • Avocado oil
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled, crushed, minced
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Sea salt
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup yellow or green split peas, rinsed well
  • 4 cups spring or filtered water
  • 2 teaspoons white miso
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh flatleaf parsley, minced

Step By Step Instructions:

Place a small amount of oil, garlic and onion in a soup pot over medium heat. When the onion begins to sizzle, add a spare pinch of salt and curry powder and sauté until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes. Add cauliflower and sauté until shiny with oil. Add peas and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until the peas are quite soft, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove a small amount of broth and dissolve miso. Return to the pot and using a hand-blender or food processor, puree soup until smooth. Return to the stove to warm through and serve garnished with fresh parsley.

COOK’S TIP: you may use either green or yellow split peas to create 2 different and beautiful soups.
