Method

Rinse split peas and lentils thoroughly, then transfer to a large bowl. 

Add 6 cups water, cover and set aside to let soak for 8 hours. 

Drain well and discard the soaking liquid. 

Bring peas and lentils to a boil in 6 cups of fresh water in a medium pot; skim off any foam that accumulates on the surface. 

Add caraway seeds, onions, celery and carrots. 

Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 40 minutes.

Add sunchokes, salt and pepper and simmer an additional 10 minutes, until sunchokes are crisp-tender. 

Ladle soup into bowls and serve, garnished with sunflower seeds.
