7 to 8 cups of chicken stock
2 large onions, chopped
2 cups carrots, chopped
3 cups cubed yams
3 stalks of broccoli, (without heads) chopped
1 lb. split peas, soaked in 1 qt. of water
Place dried split peas in a one quart measure. Add water to make one quart. Allow to soak in refrigerator for several hours. In large pot combine all other ingredients and simmer several hours. When split peas expand to fill the quart measure, pour off remaining water and rinse. Add peas to soup pot and continue to simmer.
If desired, you may add chopped bits of ham or other meat. I season mine with mint and bay leaf.
Warm up individual portions in the microwave.
Number of Servings: 10
