Curried Split Pea Soup with Chicken Recipe- Hearty and Healthy with US Pulses

Hello September! The -ber months are here again, and what better way to embrace this cold and chilly season than with a hearty and healthy bowl of soup. Today, we spice up the classic U.S. Split Pea Soup by adding a touch of curry.

U.S. Split Peas are such versatile ingredients, especially for those sticking to protein-rich diets. With the current growth and popularity of plant-based diets around the world, this recipe is a quick and easy way to kickstart your plan to shift to a healthier and heartier lifestyle.

Dry beans, lentils, dry peas, and chickpeas (garbanzos), are some of the most popular U.S. Pulses worldwide. U.S. Dry Peas come in yellow and green, which are both widely used as fried snacks or side dishes. 

Health benefits of U.S. Pulses:
- High in Protein
- High in Dietary Fiber
- High in Antioxidants and Micronutrients
- Gluten-Free
- Non-GMO
- Non-allergen
- Lower Glycemic Index Score compared to cereals

Now, let's whip up this quick and easy Curried Split Pea Soup with Chicken recipe that's both heart-healthy and halal-friendly.

1 cup U.S. Yellow Split Peas (rinsed)
1 cup celery (chopped)
1 cup white onions (chopped)
1 cup carrots (chopped)
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 stick unsalted butter
1 tbsp curry powder
salt and pepper (to taste)
chicken shreds (for topping)
fresh cilantro (chopped)


1. Sauté carrots, celery and onions in butter until soft and tender

2. Add in U.S. Split Peas, chicken stock, water, curry powder and chopped cilantro to the pot.

3. Heat to boil, then simmer for about 60-90 min. until peas are tender and soup is thick in consistency. 

4. Ladle soup in a bowl, top with chicken shreds and garnish with chopped cilantro. 

5. Serve.

Easy PEAsy right? You can also do the same recipe using U.S. Green Peas instead of Yellow Peas. I tried combining the two soups together, and it worked! It was sweet, earthy, and nutty, perfect for the bed-weather days.
