Split Pea and Basil Soup

Pea Soup

I’ve had this recipe forever – can’t remember where it’s from.  I usually forget to put in the basil, but it’s a very reliable split pea.

Saute 5 min:

  • 1 T oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Add and bring to a boil:

  • 8 oz. dry split peas
  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon or equivalent
  • 1 large potato, diced
  • 4 c water

Add and simmer 40 min:

  • 3 T basil leaves

Salt and pepper to taste (I did not add any salt).  Puree or use an immersion blender.
