The Case of Split Pea Soup

My girlfriend gave me some pansies for a hostess gift the other day. She wasn't the least bit surprised when I told her I ate them.

Split Pea Soup

2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
8 cups water
8 rounded tsps (for 8 cups) vegetable bouillon powder
2 cups split peas
2 tbsps soya sauce
6 bay leaves
2 tsps oregano
1 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp pepper
salt

Cover and simmer the first 11 ingredients (onions to pepper) for 45 min. or until the split peas are tender. Remove the bay leaves. Blend. Return to pot. Add more water if necessary. Salt to taste. Serves 5.

    1. Hi Siobhan,

      Thanks for the positive feedback. However, I'm sure you'll understand when I say I prefer to grow readership the old-fashioned way. Even if it is slower.

      Besides, Becki, Vegetarian Detective, who's maybe a wee bit suspicious by nature, thinks putting "Body" in the subject line is not the very best plan...
