Split Pea Soup


For 2 people

  • 1 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/8 cup(s) chopped carrots
  • 2 tablespoon(s) finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoon(s) finely chopped onions
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) dried thyme or 1 small sprig fresh
  • 2 cup(s) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup(s) dried split peas
  • 1 dash(es) salt, to taste
  • 1 dash(es) Freshly ground black pepper


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. Reduce 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. NOTE: Do not add salt until the peas are fully cooked, because salt will prevent the peas from becoming tender
