Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    8 ounces split peas, sorted and rinsed
    .5 C uncooked brown rice or 1 C leftover brown rice
    6 C water
    4 large carrots, cut lengthwise then sliced
    3 red potatoes, diced (1 pound)
    1 Tbsp Mrs. Dash Original (or to taste)
    Salt and pepper to taste

Tips

Makes 6 - 1.5 cup servings

If your split peas are old, rinse them; then soak for 2 - 4 hours with the brown rice before cooking. Otherwise you may end up with crunchy split peas even after a couple of hours of cooking.


Directions

Add all ingredients to large 5 quart soup pot. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer. Stir occassionally. Cook about 45 minutes. Be sure to stir frequently toward the end of the cooking time; this soup can easily stick to the bottom of the pan and burn. Add salt and pepper to taste.
