Ingredients

  • 1

    pound green split peas

  • 2

    quarts water

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2

    celery ribs, cut into 1/2 inch dice

  • 2

    carrots cut into 1/2 inch dice

  • 1

    onion cut into 1/2 inch dice

  • 1

    teasp. marjoram leaves

  • 1

    teaspoon thyme leaves

  • salt and pepper

Directions

1. In a large pot, combine the split peas and water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 2 minutes, cover and let stand for 1 hour. 2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil. Add the celery, carrots, onion, marjoram and thyme and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, 8 minutes. Scrape the mixture into the split peas and simmer over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the peas have dissolved and the soup is thickened, about 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper. My only addition to this recipe is I put a ham bone with meat on it into the soup when I add the vegetables. When soup is finished I remove the bone and dice the meat and add back to the soup. This adds lots of flavor.
