1/2 c

2 clove

1 c
finely chopped kale
1 c
diced potatoes
1-8 oz. can(s)

salt or accent
3/4 tsp
black pepper
1/4 tsp
red pepper flakes (opt.)
1
bay leaf
1 lb
dried split green peas
8 c
water or chicken broth
(i used a combination or water, goya chicken bouillon packets, and vegetable flavor enhancer to make 8 cups of flavored broth.)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot, sauté onions, garlic, celery and carrots in olive oil until the vegetables start to soften. Add potatoes and kale and cook a little longer.
2
Rinse and sort through the split peas.
3
Add the peas and the remainder of the ingredients, except the pumpkin. Bring to a boil.
4
Turn down the heat and simmer for about an hour. Stir in the pumpkin and continue simmering for another hour to an hour an a half until it gets as thick as you like it.
5
Stir frequently while cooking so it doesn't stick or burn on the bottom.
