Number of Servings: 10


    2 c dried split peas
    12 c water
    4 bay leaves
    sea salt
    1 T olive oil
    1 lg yellow onion, peeled and chopped
    4 ribs celery, trimmed and chopped
    3 thick carrots, peeled and chopped
    2 c low-sodium chicken broth
    6 cups water
    1 t chopped fresh thyme
    1.5 c cubed roasted turkey breast


1. Put dried peas in large saucepan and cover with 12 cups of water. Add 2 bay leaves and sea salt and bring to a boil. Let cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

2. In a Dutch oven, place olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add onions, celery, and carrots. Saute for 10 minutes until onion starts to become translucent.

3. Add chicken broth and 6 cups water. Add 2 more bay leaves, peas, and thyme and bring to a boil. Add roasted turkey breast. Reduce heat and cover. Let simmer for an hour; the peas must be soft. Check the pot now and then, since the peas have a tendency to settle to the bottom and burn. They must be broken up by stirring.

4. Remove the bay leaves and season with sea salt and fresh black pepper. Serve hot.

    Very Good
    It was very good, my boyfriend and I both enjoyed it very much. I had to simmer mine for about an hour and a half as my peas were still hard after an hour. - 10/11/09
