Yellow Split Pea Soup

It was cool this morning and so my mind went to soup…  This is what I came up with.  With sides of good bread, some sauteed broccoli, and a bowl of cherries, I was sooooo happy.

Ingredients

2 tbsp Olive Oil

2 cups chopped celery

1 cup chopped leeks

2 cups chopped carrots

1 1/2 cups dried yellow split peas

1/4 cup chopped celery leaves

4 cups vegetable broth

3 cups water

1/4 cup white wine

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp ground coriander

3/4 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

How to:

In soup pot, saute celery, carrots, and leeks in olive oil until just soft.  Add vegetable broth and water, bring to a boil. Add split peas and celery leaves.  Bring to boil again.  Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes, until peas and carrots are soft.  Add wine, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper and cook for another 10-15 minutes.  With immersion blender, blend soup to just smooth/a bit chunky consistency.  Serves 8.
