Split Pea Rice

2057

Split pea and rice plus some veggies make a healthy and fulfilling meal.

2
½ cup cooked wild rice
2 cup water
2 cloves
½ onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium carrot, roughly chopped
1 celery stick, roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled.
½ cup split pea
2 tablespoon chopped green onion
Insert cloves into the onion. Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic, sauté for 3 minutes. Add split pea and sauté for 1 minute. Add 2 cups of water and boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for about 45 minutes, until the peas become soft. Add more water if content of the pot is becoming dry, so the bottom doesn’t get burned. Cook longer if you want the peas to become really soft. Remove pan from heat. Discard onion, carrot, celery and garlic. (If you want to keep them, chop them more finely and mix in with the rice.) Add wild rice into the split pea soup and stir. Simmer the split pea rice until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped green onion and serve.
