I like to keep a one pound bag of split peas in the house just in case we’re in the mood for pea soup. We just had the big blizzard the day after Christmas, and I was snowed in with my son Benji. I couldn’t have been happier. He loves soup, I love him, so I made him a pot of delicious, warming soup. It was a great day.
1 pound bag of green split peas
1 pound bag of yellow split peas
2 large onion
4 quarts water
about pound of organic carrots, cut into smallish chunks
kosher salt and black pepper to taste
Rinse the peas. Put in large saucepan. Pour the water over. Peel onions and then pierce with a fork, and place in pot whole. Put sliced carrots in pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer covered about 2 hours over low flame, adding your salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with thin egg noodles, matzoh balls, cooked Kosher hot dogs pieces, or just plain.
