    Easy Split Pea Soup

    1 lb dried green split peas (prefer Goya)
    10 cups water
    1-2 beef boullion cubes (optional; can also use 1-2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock, but then use only 8 or 9 cups water instead of 10 above)
    3-4 medium carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
    2 medium onions, coarsely chopped

    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    pieces of ham or chicken (optional)

    Rinse peas, then add to water and bouillion (or stock) in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer (covered) for 30-40 minutes, occasionally dipping off foam. Add all other ingredients and simmer for another 40 minutes or until peas are soft.

    One of my favorite soups. I like to add celery, potatoes, and sometimes green pepper. More vegetables stretch the protein and add nutrition.

    I make this soup all the time. I use a ham bone or leftover chopped ham if I have it, otherwise, I just use carrots and onion to flavor it and it is always good. It's also good to puree the cooked soup then sprinkle homemade croutons on top for a little crunch.
