Delicious split pea soup!
|Servings 5||Serving Size 1 Cup|
First wash and check the dried split peas for any rocks or dirt. Set aside.
In a soup pot place oil, garlic, onion, celery, carrot and bring to sizzle, turn down to medium heat and cook covered for 5 minutes. Uncover and place water, peas, rosemary, bay, lemon pepper seasoning, salt, soy sauce, liquid smoke into pot and bring to a quick boil. Turn down to medium to low heat. Cook for 60 minutes or until peas are just tender and are starting to fall apart. Take off heat, remove bay leaf and mash the soup with a potato masher to break the peas up so that it creates a creamy texture. Not too much, we want to leave some whole peas.
