Usually I'll head over to Whole Foods Bulk section and pick up a big bunch of beans, add water, boil, add spices and let it simmer for the majority of a weekend day, while I pick up the odds and ends of life around my apartment.
Curried Yellow Split Pea Kale Soup
3 cups dried split pea (~ 1 lb)
9 cups water
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
2-3 cups kale, chopped.
salt and pepper to taste.
Rinse the split peas, and then bring water and peas to boil. Then reduce heat to a simmer and let sit for 3-4 hours. After about 2 hours, add spices. Wait an hour more than chopped pieces of kale, taste and add more seasoning if desired. Serve warm, or refrigerate and eat it cold like hummus.
