Vegetarian Split Pea Soup Recipe
- Heat the oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add the carrot, celery, onion and thyme, season lightly with pepper and cook for 10 minutes.
- Add the stock and split peas, and bring to a boil quickly over high heat.
- Lower the heat and simmer until the peas are tender, about 1 hour.
- Puree 2/3 of the soup in a blender and stir it into the remaining 1/3.
- If the soup is too thick, thin it by adding a little more stock. Raise the heat and bring the soup to a boil for 15 seconds.
- Add salt and additional pepper to taste.
