ingredients

serves 4
100 g (4 oz) yellow split peas, soaked overnight and drained
1 onion, finely chopped
2 celery sticks, thinly sliced
1 small leek, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
2 tablespoons medium oatmeal
1 litre (1 3/4 pints) chicken stock
salt and pepper
4 tablespoons natural low-fat yogurt (optional)
4 thin lemon slices, to garnish

method

1. Put the split peas, onion, celery, leek, lemon rind, lemon juice, turmeric and oatmeal into a saucepan, stir them together and pour on the stock. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.

2. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

3. Swirl the yogurt on top, if using, and garnish the soup with the lemon slices. Serve hot.

Turmeric not only gives a distinctive flavour to the soup but also adds colour. Buy all spices in small quantities and store them in a cool dark place.
