How to Make "Comfort Split Pea Soup"
- I use a great 4-6 quart cooking pot. Rinse and clean split peas well, then begin cooking according to package directions, replacing broth for water. However, add water as needed while simmering until peas become completely soupy and smooth. Thickness is your preference.
- Saute onion, celery, (diced ham-optional), and carrots; garlic-add toward the end of sauteing-for about 3-5 minutes, then add mixture to simmering pot of peas.
- Let simmer for up to 2-hours stirring frequently so soup doesn't stick to bottom of pot. Add desired amounts of salt and pepper. Remember broth has some sodium so don't over salt. Enjoy!
