WHAT SPECIAL KITCHEN EQUIPMENT?
1 large pan

Some packets of split peas advise soaking them for at least 5 hours before cooking, others do not require pre-soaking. Always follow the packet instructions.

Ours advised pre-soaking, the before (left hand) and after peas (right hand) are shown in the picture on the left.

PREPARATION

Roughly chop the celery, carrots, onions, garlic and parsley.

First, rinse the split peas in cold water. Put all the ingredients in a large pan and simmer (just bubbling) for 40 to 50 minutes. The soup is ready when the split peas and carrots are cooked. Stir occasionally during cooking.

Allow the soup to cool for five minutes then liquidise it using a blender or food processor.


 
It really is that simple! Before serving the soup, have a taste and add more salt and pepper if required.

Serve the soup with crusty bread and garnish with some of the parsley.
