Dairy-Free Recipes

Modified Split Pea Dal


  • 1 cup yellow split peas (uncooked)
  • 2 cups water (or chicken broth)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 onion (diced, I chose chives for colour)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin (whole seeds or ground)
  • 2 whole garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp curry


  • In a large pot, place the uncooked yellow split peas and the water or vegetable broth, and bring to a slow simmer
  • Add the spices
  • Cook for at least 30 minutes, covered, until the yellow split peas are fully cooked, stirring occasionally.
  • You can also continue to cook your dal for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, if you prefer, to allow the yellow split peas to break up and have a smoother texture. 
  • Once the split peas are done, stir in your vegan margerine( or alternative butter/oil of choice)
  • Enjoy!
