    6 cloves garlic (fewer, if preferred)

Saute the onion in water. Press garlic into onion and cook another minute or two. Add the split peas and cover with broth. Bring to a boil. Add the celery, carrots, bay leaf and barley and boil gently until the split peas and barley are soft. Add more broth or water if needed to keep the soup covered. Salt and pepper to taste.
