This makes a really hearty pea soup. The more split peas you add, the thicker your soup will be. Just remember to stir your pot every 5 minutes or so that the peas don’t stick to the bottom!

10 – 12 cups of vegetable stock*

1 onion, chopped

3 – 4 stalks of celery, chopped

3 – 4 carrots, grated

2 – 3 potatoes, diced

1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp garlic, minced
Salt & pepper, to taste
1 tsp celery seed
1 package
(about 12 – 16 oz) green split peas (the more peas you add, the thicker your soup will be)

Put water and soup base in pot.

When near boiling, add all remaining ingredients.

Cover and gently simmer for at least 1 ½ hours, until peas are cooked down. MAKE SURE TO STIR YOUR SOUP EVERY 5 MINUTES OR SO as the peas will sink to the bottom of the pot until they soften.

You may need to add more seasoning once peas are cooked.
