brynns split pea soup

What you need: 

1 MED ONION
3-4 STALKS CELERY
4-5 CARROTS
1 CLOVE GARLIC
2 LEAVES FRESH basil (1 teaspoon dried is fine)
4-6 WHITE ROSE POTATOES
3 TABLESPOONS OLIVE OIL
2-4 CUPS DRIED SPLIT PEAS
SALT TO TASTE
VEGETARIAN VEGETABLE BROTH

What you do: 

Finely chop onion, celery, and garlic. In LARGE pot, add olive oil and saute onion over med heat for about 5 min. then add celery and garlic. Continue to saute for another 10-15 minutes or so, while you peel and chop your carrots into bite-size pieces. Add carrots to the onion and celery, along with enough water to cover all ingredients. Add basil and veggie broth ( I use Knorr brand veggie broth, it comes in double size cubes of which I use about three to five depending on how much soup I am making. Cover and simmer on med-low heat while you peel and cube your potatoes into bite size pieces. Add potatoes to veggies and cover with water, plus enough to bring the water level about 4 inches above the vegetables. Cover and simmer until all the veggies are soft. Next, using a strainer and ladel, scoop the stock from the vegetable mixture through a strainer into a med-large pan and put your peas into it. Cover and cook until the peas are VERY soft. You then need to blend the split-pea mixture,using a blender-I prefer a hand blender so I can blend it right in the same pan. Blend until very smooth and add to the vegetables. Now just season to taste... ENJOY!!!!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was a very good recipe! The only thing I did differently was that I blended all the veggies together (not just the peas) so it would have a smooth texture, otherwise my family wouldn't have touched it. Dh liked it, and he's very picky. My 1yo loved it, but unfortunately it didn't like him much. He woke up with a tummy ache. :(

So I definitely think this is an awesome recipe and will make it again, but next time I will do most just peas for the kids. Otherwise it was a big hit

FANTASTIC. I followed this recipe almost exactly but added an extra stalk of celery to use up what I had, and used Idaho baking potatos (3 large) instead of what the recipe called for. For a little something extra, I tossed in about 3/4 pound of vegan 'ham' from May Wah (http://www.vegieworld.com/cart/product_pages.asp?id=546) in a 1/4 inch dice AFTER putting the soup through the food processor. Added a bit of ground sea salt and freshly ground peppercorns and dug in. This is an excellent soup served with corn chips (Fritos or whatever) or corn bread. Thanks!!!
