Split Peas with Brussels Sprouts (No Added Fat)

  • 1/2 cup split peas
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 medium carrot cut into large 3/4" slices
  • Half dozen or so Brussels sprouts, halved after trimming away outer leaves and ends
  • 2 or 3 leaves kale, hand torn into approximately 1" pieces
  • 1/8 t turmeric
  • 1/4 t lemon pepper
  • 4 cloves
  • (I wanted to add 1/2 t ground cumin, but found that I was out of cumin, so skipped it)
  • 1/2 cup onion cut into approx. 3/8" cubes
  • 1t lemon or lime juice
  • 1/8 t (or to taste) salt
  1. I put all of the ingredients except the onion, lime juice and salt, into my Instant Pot pressure cooker and cooked for 10m.
  2. After the cooking was done, I waited a few minutes and gently released pressure, then served with leftover brown rice


Ideas for the future

I had forgotten but should have added ginger and jalapeno before cooking. I topped with raw jalapeno when I served but cooking would have been better.
