Thai-flavored Pea Soup

Split pea soup is a simple favorite, especially for this cold weather. My preferred way to cook split pea soup  is in a pressure cooker.

½ cup green split peas
1 Tbsp grated ginger (or galangal)
1 tsp lemongrass powder
1 cup water
1 cup vegetable stock
1 Tbsp green curry paste
1 14 oz. can light coconut milk
salt to taste

Vegetables: red and green bell peppers, chopped finely; spring onions chopped finely for garnish


  1. Add all the ingredients except coconut milk, in a pressure cooker and cook till done
  2. Meanwhile, saute the vegetables, and prepare the garnish
  3. When pressure cooker is ready to be opened, mash the cooked split peas if needed
  4. Stir in the coconut milk and heat up the soup gently; add the sauteed vegetables
  5. Serve warm, topped with spring onions and croutons if preferred
