Liquid Crack

I've never smoked crack but I'm sure the feeling would be similar to what I got tonight from the CURRY SPLIT PEA SOUP I just ate. I feel high and euphoric. And I'm totally addicted. I want more...but I have to save some for lunch tomorrow, damn!!

I got the recipe from ppk.com (PostPunkKitchen).

Since I got the recipe for free I have no problem posting the recipe for you here (after the pic of course).

16 oz dried split peas
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 medium white onion, diced small
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups water
1 carrot to grate in at the end (optional)

Spice blend
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
2 teaspoons salt
generous pinch cinnamon

Saute the onions in the olive oil at medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and spices. Saute 2 more minutes.

Add the water and stir well. Add the splitpeas. Cover and bring to a boil.

Bring heat back down to medium, let soup simmer for about an hour, until peas are tender. Grate in the carrot and serve. You can garnish with fresh cilantro if you have it on hand.

Jebus!! This is good!

PPK is the real crack :) BTW, I meant to comment on your bento post a couple of weeks back but it somehow wouldn't load the comment window. I own exactly this bento. In fact, it's been my first one, too. The trick about these tiny thingies is to stuff them properly. this site might be helpful, too: http://lunchinabox.net/2007/03/07/guide-to-choosing-the-right-size-bento-box/
