Yellow Split Pea Dahl


In a large pot, place the peas and water or vegetable broth, and bring to a slow simmer. Add the turmeric, cayenne and salt, and cover. Allow to cook at least 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a large skillet, heat the onion, cumin and clove in the Earth Balance/margarine. Cook for 4-6 minutes, until onion is soft. Add the onion and spices to the split peas, and allow to simmer for at least 5 more minutes.

Add a dash of pepper and more salt, if desired, and serve hot with rice
