1 cup split peas, preferably yellow, but green is fine too
1/2 cup quinoa
1 large onion, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
1 large clove garlic, smashed 'n pealed
2 square inches kombu (or any edible seaweed-to help any legume cook quicker)
4 cup purified water
Combine all ingredients. Cook until peas are unrecognizable; about 40 to 50 minutes~stirring often so as not to scorch. Add water as needed. Or, I prefer to pressure cook for 18-20 minutes allowing the pot to cool at least 10 minutes with out heat before breaking the seal. Finish with Himalayen or sea salt and fresh ground white pepper. I usually add a little Tamari or Braggs to my own.
