An easy, healthy recipe. I usually add a cup of cooked barley to the soup and serve with croutons.
- 1 cup split peas
- 5 cups chicken stock
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1 carrot, chopped
- Put all ingredients in pot; heat to boiling.
- Lower heat to simmer; simmer uncovered for 1 hour.
- Pour into blender in batches or use hand blender to purée all. return to stove to heat through.
- Stir in barley, if using. May be garnished w/bacon, croutons, sour cream, etc., but good on its own.
This was nice and easy but tasted like a lot more effort than it really took!
Excellent soup. Easy to make, and very tasty. I doubled the recipe and added some diced ham for flavor and some Velotine to thicken it up. An instant favorite.
Great soup. I ate it for three days and still could have more. That's coming from a person who rarely eats the same thing twice. Thank you.
