Yes, I’m back to sharing ideas for condiments and accoutrements. It’s summer and that means the main meal components should be cooked and enjoyed outside in the company of friends and family. On that note, I’ll be posting semi-monthly, rather than weekly until further notice. The kayak is calling, so I’ll catch you later!

Feel free to add some butter when blending the peas. Your vegan friends won’t be happy, but it adds a nice texture and helps retain moisture.

Time: 70 minutes

Serves: 8


1l water
200g dried yellow split peas
80g onion – small dice
4g kosher salt
0.5g fresh ground black pepper
0.3g ground thyme
0.3g ground rosemary


Place all ingredients in a medium pot on high heat. Once a boil is reached, reduce heat to a gentle boil.

Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally until most of the water has evaporated (approximately 1 hour).

Remove from heat and purée with a stick blender.

Serve immediately or gently reheat later.

  1. Hey Kev,
    This recipe is great for people like myself who is limited to a soft food diet.
    I will try it out next time when I make fish.

    Thank you,
