Introduction

This is an Ethiopian Side Dish recipe from Leah Eskin of the Chicago Tribune This is an Ethiopian Side Dish recipe from Leah Eskin of the Chicago Tribune
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
    1/4 cup each, chopped: onion, carrot, celery
    2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger (plus a little)
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
    course salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 pound yellow split peas, rinsed, sorted
    8 cups fat-free chicken broth
    olive oil
    lemon wedges

Directions

Soften: warm butter over medium heat in a large soup pot. Add onion, carrot, celery, ginger and garlic. Season with cardamom, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring now and then, until vegetables turn soft and fragrant, about 12 minutes. Stir in peas.
Simmer: Pour in broth. Heat to a boil, skimming foam from the surface. Lower to a simmer, partially cover and cook, stirring once in a while, until thick and creamy (adding more liquid if need be). Times vary, depending on the peas, but count on one hour.
Season: Taste. Add salt and pepper if you like, or even another teaspoon grated ginger. Serve, drizzled with a little olive oil and a spritz of lemon. Works as a side dish, as a dip for crunchy vegetables and pita chips, or rolled into whole-wheat lavash or other flatbread.
