    1. Boil the spit peas in the water with the onions and salt, until cooked through, about 1 hour.
    2. When cooked, push through a sieve (or blend with a stick blender). Reheat and add the tomato puree. Cook until warmed through.
    3. Serve with crusty bread.


    If you soak your split peas overnight, it reduces the cooking time. You do not have to do this, just simmer for longer and add more water if necessary.
