Simple Split Pea Soup

Introduction

Serve the soup hot with a nice crusty bread or whole wheat muffins Serve the soup hot with a nice crusty bread or whole wheat muffins
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    6 cups water
    1-1/2 teaspoons salt
    1-1/2 cups dry split peas

Directions

First heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until they are tender and fragrant. Be careful not to burn the garlic. Next add the water, salt and split peas. Stir it up and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low. Cover the pot and allow it to simmer for about two hours. The split peas will disintegrate, forming a nice thick stew. You may need to thin the soup out with a little water if it gets too thick. .



If you like you may add a couple of chopped
carrots and a few chopped celery stalks for flavor during the last hour of cooking. This soup is very hearty, and is made without stock or milk. Serves about 6.


*Top with shredded cheddar cheese and chopped cooked bacon. Ooooh...naughty.
