Cumin Scented Lentil and Split Pea Soup

0 from 0 votes

When you combine lentils and split peas, the result is simply delicious.

The combination of lentils and split peas offers complex carbohydrates, fiber, and protein, for ongoing energy. Plus, lentils are high in iron, a mineral many women lack in their diets, especially when we’re trying to eat lean and rely more on veggies. For an exotic twist, the flavor of cumin adds spice and the coconut milk lends a unique flavor and texture. Plus, this soup is a cinch to prepare. Your only prep is the dicing of onions and mincing of garlic. After that, simply combine your ingredients in the slow cooker, and go! For a soup with such an exceptional blend of flavors and such high quality ingredients, no one will know that it took minutes to prepare!

  1. Very good. I used half broth and half water. I will continue experimenting with the combination broth/water as well as no salt broth/water. I love the lentil and pea combo.

    Merci beaucoup from Ontario
