SPLIT PEA SOUP

Split peas are great for soup. Sometimes I cook them similar to dried beans. Split peas do not tend to create the "after effects" that beans can. I liked this recipe because it is meat free. I am not a vegetarian, but I really don't like meat at every meal. Plus this in another recipe from the Mayo-Clinic cookbook. My "new favorite" book. Enjoy!

1Rinse and thoroughly drain the split peas.
