Split Pea Dahl

My best friend absolutely hates chickpeas (I know, I know, how could you hate them?!) so I had to find something easy and cheap to make for them while they were over.  I found this recipe and modified it a little below, and added the price of the ingredients.

  • 1 cup yellow split peas, uncooked      80c
  • 3-4 cups water
  • 2 cubes veggie stock                           40c
  • 10 mushrooms                                   $2.20
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Nuttelex
  • 1/2 onion, diced                                  30c
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic                                     5c
  • dash pepper and salt, to taste
  • 1 cup rice                                           90c
  1. Place water, stock, peas, chopped mushrooms and turmeric in a large pot and let simmer for 25 minutes. You may need to continue adding water to ensure it's not too dry.
  2. Cook rice in water in seperate pot. 
  3. Fry onion, garlic, Nuttelex and cumin.
  4. Add onion mix to pea mix.  Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes, until peas are soft.
  5. Serve with rice.
Makes: 2-3 serves

Total: $4.65
