Ahhhh! Just the thing for a chilly January day. I am sitting here in a happy pepper/garlic glow (although, really, this is a fairly subtly spiced recipe.) Like all peas soups, this is better re-heated. I needed to add a bit more salt, probably because I used homemade, unsalted, chicken stock.

There's nothing better on a frigid day in Montana than to have the wood stove cranked up and a pot of split pea soup simmering on the stove... I add more garlic, bay leaves, chopped carrots, sliced celery, and diced Yukon Gold potatoes to my soup --- my kitchen smells ~W~O~N~D~E~R~F~U~L~

This was really good I will make it again often.Thank you so much for this easy and healthy soup.It was simple to convert to vegan and it was just packed with flavor.The oregano is what sends this right over the top.I would never have thought to use it in peas.Yum.
