Wow! Pea Soup

What you need: 

1 large red onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 cup green split peas
1 cup yellow split peas
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried thyme or 1 Tablespoon fresh, chopped
1 teaspoon dried mint or 1 Tablespoon fresh, chopped
1 teaspoon ea: black pepper, salt
2 tablespoons imitation bacon bits (optional, but recommended)
water, to cover (may use broth or add bouillon, omit salt)

What you do: 

A "souper" colorful way to warm you up on a cold day.
Saute veggies, in a little oil or water, until just tender. Add split peas, herbs, pepper, salt, and imitation bacon bits. Cover with water, about 2 inches above the peas and vegetables. Bring to a boil over medium-high; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until split peas are tender. May need to add a little more water- and don't forget to stir from time to time. Good served with a bit of soy sour cream and a dash of hot sauce. Try leftovers over rice or couscous. (Easily made in crockpot also.)
