This pea soup is winter comfort food. Cooking fills kitchen with amazing smells. Almost like baking bread.
A favorite we make almost once a week.
"This is both a winter and summer favorite. Also freezes very well."
In a sauce pan, brown onions, 5 min. Add celery, carrots and garlic, and continue to saute, 5 minutes. Add a touch of water as necessary.
Then add split peas, potatoes, water and spices, stir and bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer and cover 1 and 1/2 hours.
Allow to partially cool, and with stick blender partially blend together, leaving a few peas and potato chunks for texture.
Salt to taste and garnish with fresh parsley.
carolynwitt1 2w agoTwo cups water is not sufficient for volume of peas and potatoes. Is this a misprint?

Michelt 1y agoTasty (easy to make) soup! I used about 5 cups of water.
navarrosarah 3y agoThis soup was very good; although I did have to add another two cups of liquid (veggie broth). I will definitely make it again smells so yummy while cooking.
