      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.
