Ingredients Steps
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
6 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 qt. vegetable stock
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
½ tsp. marjoram
6 bay leaves
2 lbs. split peas (any color), rinsed
  1. In a large cooking pot, sauté the onions, celery, and carrots in the canola oil until they start to soften.
  2. Add the vegetable stock and all the other ingredients to the pot.
  3. Bring to boiling, reduce heat, cover, and simmer (don't boil) for 1 ½ hours.
  4. Stir and check liquid level several times during the cooking process and add water as necessary as the peas absorb the liquid. (I probably added at least another quart while cooking. Use your judgment here.)
  5. Remove bay leaves and purée using an immersion blender. Alternatively, you can purée in small batches in a blender, but the "boat motor" method is much easier.
  6. If the soup is too thick, just add water in small amounts.
