Split Pea Soup

What you need: 

2 cups split peas
10 cups water
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 sprigs parsley (or 1 teaspoon dried)
2 sprigs dill (or 1 teaspoon dried)
1 large onion, chopped finely
2 carrots, chopped finely
2 ribs celery, chopped finely

What you do: 

1. Peas may be presoaked for faster cooking. Combine peas, water, and seasonings in a large pot.
2. Add vegetables. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook over low heat until peas are tender (about 3 hours if unsoaked).
You can also add 1/2 cup uncooked barley about 1/2 hour before completion (but add an extra cup water). The soup is thick to start with, and gets thicker with standing. It can be frozen. Enjoy!'

awesome recipe! I decided to use 1/3 c barley but I think next time I make it I will put in the whole 1/2 cup. I also added broccoli which was amazing, it got completely overdone and the only thing left was the stalk pieces which was really good. I didnt have celery so I used the ribs of bok choy. I will totally make this again, many times. Thanks so much!


;)b This is a really good recipe! I've never made split pea soup before and this was really simple. I liked the barley, although I might add a little less next time. I also didn't use an onion and it still tasted really yummy!
