Time for this week’s store cupboard soup: and a very yummy one it is too:

Spiced split pea and coconut soup

1 onion chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed or finely chopped
1 l veg stock
300 g split green peas
1 heaped tsp biryianni paste (or other curry paste)
2 heaped tbsp desiccated coconut (or some coconut milk)

Fry the onion and garlic until soft, about 5 mins. Stir in the curry paste and fry for another minute. Add the split peas and stir until covered in the paste. Add the veg stock and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer gently until the peas are soft, about 50 minutes. Add the coconut, cook for another couple of minute and then blitz until desired consistency. Enjoy!
