Wonderbag split pea soup

Yesterday afternoon I decided to experiment with my new Wonderbag (read my last post for background).

I fried some onions, garlic, ginger, chilli and turmeric, added split peas and chopped sweet potatoes, and covered the lot with veggie stock. The split pea package said to cook for 30-45 min, so I boiled them for 15 and popped them in the Wonderbag. Two hours later the split peas were almost cooked but not quite, so I left the pot in there for another few hours. By bedtime, it was cooked!

I probably saved about half an hour’s worth of gas and I could get on with other things (including leaving the house to take kids to swimming lesson) without worrying about burning the soup.

I like this Wonderbag!
