Split Pea Soup with Orange and Tarragon

What you need: 

1 tablespoon oil (olive, canola, etc.)
2 medium onions, chopped
3 tablespoons dried tarragon
6 cups + water
1 cup dried split green peas
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon red wine
pinch cayenne
salt and pepper

What you do: 

In pot, lightly sauté onions in oil, until onions begin to get translucent (no need to cook onions through). Add tarragon. Add split peas, cayenne and water. Bring to boil. Gently simmer until tender, about 2 hours, adding water if necessary. For soup, desired final product will be peas lightly bound with water, easy to stir. For a pea puree side dish, a tighter mixture. Season with salt toward the end of cooking time. Remove from heat. Puree. Add orange juice and wine. Combine well. Correct seasoning.
