Hearty Solar Soup

Split peas don’t need to be presoaked making them ideal for the Sun Oven when the weather forecast is uncertain. I managed to throw this soup together with ingredients I had on hand despite the fact that I wasn’t planning on doing any solar cooking today.

Solar Curried Split-Pea Soup

Ingredients

1 pound dried yellow split peas, picked over and rinsed

1 small onion, diced

2 medium carrots, diced

2 stalks celery, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Set Global Sun Oven out to preheat.

Combine peas, ham, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme, curry powder, and water in a large pot. Cover and cook in Sun Oven until peas are soft and falling apart. Remove thyme sprig. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Makes 4 servings.
