Split-Peas Cream Soup

If you follow my blog, you probably know by now that I like soups. I hope you like them too because here is another one of my family's favorite soups. Easy to make, using simple ingredients that you might have already at home, and economical.


1 1/2 cups dry split peas
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp. oil
2 carrots, chopped
2 sticks celery, chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. marjoram
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. Chicken seasoning
1/2 tsp. basil
Vegeta Seasoning (or other vegetable seasoning)
Salt and pepper, to taste

Wash peas and soak them in water, for a few hours, then cook them until soft. 

Saute onions; add carrots and celery. Add water, about 2 quarts  and add paprika, garlic powder, marjoram, Italian seasoning, chicken seasoning, basil and vegeta seasoning  (or other vegetable seasonings). Cook for 15-20  minutes until vegetable become soft. Mix with the cooked split-peas. Season with salt and pepper, to taste and cook for 2 minutes.

Remove from stove and let it cool, until just warm (but not hot).

Using a blender,  blend soup, (a few ladles at a time) until all smooth and creamy. Pour into a pot. Repeat with the remaining soup until all is blended.

Serve with crackers.
