Curried Pea Soup

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, where we offer recipes for creative and delicious food, from our kitchen to yours! 

Welcome to Our Sunday Cafe! We have a new look.

Offering food that is not fussy, but always delicious and easy to prepare. Real food, with real ingredients, providing real enjoyment at mealtime…thank you for dropping by!

There is one truth we all share, there can never be too many recipes for soup! This recipe for Curried Pea Soup is warming in cold weather, frugal when the food budget is tight, and just tastes good!  Soup can be meaty or contain none at all. That is actually the real beauty about soup, it can be made with what you have on hand and still be delicious! 

So let's talk about this soup. I noticed the recipe in a little book of bean recipes, found when we were visiting a used bookstore. The recipes are printed on coarse paper stock, and there are no photos. It would have been very easy to not notice this book at all, but with a recipe this good, I am glad that little book caught my eye! This soup recipe is a lot like that little book, fairly plain, but quite wonderful...

It is a very straightforward recipe for split pea soup, but with an added surprise ingredient. A touch of curry. The texture of the soup is creamy, the peas cook down nicely and becoming part of the broth. A perfect sipping soup on a chilly day, I hope you give it a try!

olive oil, start with 2 T
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 T curry powder (if you are a seasoned curry fan, by all means, add more, if desired)

1 c dried split peas
6 c chicken bone stock
2-3 carrots, peeled if desired and diced
2-3 stalks celery, diced
1-2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1 t sugar
1 t salt
1 bay leaf

2 T flour

1/4 c cold water

In a large soup pot, add the oil, onion, and garlic. Saute until onion is softened. Add the curry powder through the bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer 1 hour and 15 minutes or until peas are very soft and falling apart. Remove bay leaf.

Increase heat to high, stir flour into cold water until smooth with no lumps. Stir into the soup, stirring constantly until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

  1. Love the flavor of curry and love pea soup. Now I'm wondering why I never combined them before. I'm adding this to my winter soup list.

  2. Hi Melynda,
    Glad to hear that you are much better!
    And that is one delicious bowl of soup!

  5. Split pea soup is one of my favorites. Very much a comfort food. But I’ve never tried it with the twist of curry, so this is a new idea!

    Thanks for sharing at the Homestead Blog Hop!

    1. I think you will like the curry, it is very light, unlike a curry main dish.
