Split Pea Soup
1 lb dried split peas
8-9 cups broth (I used 5 cups broth and 3 cups water)
4 carrots, chopped
3 medium potatoes, chopped (I used the 2 I had on hand)
3 celery stocks, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients on the stove top and cook on medium to medium-high until peas and vegetables are soft. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
I did omit the ham from their recipe. It was perfect, especially since we ate this when it was raining outside.
Wait. I live in Portland. Rain?
Their recipe calls for a crockpot, which you certainly could do and have a stress-free day. On low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3-4.
