The easiest and most delicious split pea soup recipe from The 5-Ingredient Vegetarian Gourmet, only the most amazingly awesome (simple) cookbook ever!
Even the kids devoured it! I'm sure it helped that we called it Yoda Swamp Soup, but either way the fact that they ate it was awesome!
16 oz green or yellow split peas
1/2 cup barley or rice
1 lg onion finely chopped
3 medium carrots thinly sliced
seasoning as desired
1. Combine all ingredients in a large soup pot with 8 cups of water. Bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently for about an hour.
2. Stir in 2 cups of water and simmer until peas are completely mushy, about 30 minutes. Season to taste and serve.
