    2 medium onions, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    3 carrots, diced
    3 ribs celery, chopped
    2 cups dried split peas, checked carefully for debris and rinsed
    6-7 cups water

Lightly spray the bottom of a pressure cooker or Dutch oven with canola oil. Sauté the onions for about 5 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan often, until they begin to caramelize. Add the garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 2 more minutes.Add the peas to the pot. Add 6-7 cups water. Stir in the potatoes, bay leaf, celery seed, basil, and thyme. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over very low heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until peas are soft and disintegrate when stirred.Add the liquid smoke, salt, and pepper.
