Vegan MoFo Day 21: Split Pea soup

No energy for cooking anything too elaborate or time-consuming today so I went for one of my favourite soups instead. I adapted this recipe from A Vegan Taste of East Africa by Linda Majzlik. I have found some of my favourite recipes from the Vegan Taste of books:
Ethiopian Spicy Green Split Pea Soup
225g/8oz split green peas
1 onion, coarsely chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
2 Tbps vegetable stock
1 tsp ground ginger
black pepper
900ml/1½ pts vegetable stock
finely chopped fresh coriander

Saute the onion in 2 Tbsp vegetable stock. Add split peas, garlic, chilli and ginger and season with black pepper. Add 900 ml/1½ pts vegetable stock, stir well and bring to the boil. Cover the pan, reduce heat to a low simmer and cook for around 30 minutes until the peas are well done and the soup is thick.  Puree with a hand blender, adding more water to get the consistency you prefer. Serve garnished with chopped coriander.
