Split yellow pea stew

My mom has visited me and she brought these healthy split yellow peas from Slovakia, so we made a tasty stew out of it :)

These yellow peas are very healthy, high in Vitamin A and B. They are as well a great source of plant based protein. The contain a high, 25grams of protein in 100grams. Perfect for non-meat eaters, and a tasty choice for meat eaters as well :) 

What will you need:
- 500 grams split yellow peas, soaked overnight
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 heaped tsp fresh marjoram or dried
- 1 tbsp veggie bujon
- 0.5 l of unsweetened oat milk (or rice milk) 
- 4 tbsp chickpea flour
- Salt according to taste
- water

Place the yellow peas into a big pan. Add water, so it is 2-3cm above the peas. Add 1 tsp of black pepper, salt, 1 tbsp veggie bujon (I used my mom's self made bujon), and salt. Cook for about an hour stirring frequently, as the peas burn quickly to the bottom. When the water evaporates, fill it with more cooking water. You should be getting a thick soup, like the one in the picture. When the peas are cooked, mix the oat milk with 4 tbsp chickpea flour. Make a smooth paste and add it to the soup. Add the marjoram too and bring the soup to boil for a few seconds. Voalaaa, the soup is done :) The soup is slightly spicy from the peas and the black pepper.


Top with toasted walnuts and sunflower seeds. Serve with garlic toasts. The garlic toasts are easy to make: toast a bread and rub a pealed garlic onto the warm bread. Yumiiii, I love the bread and garlic combo, which is just a perfect companion to this soup ;)

Enjoy :)
