Here's my favorite pea soup! I made this just a few days ago, and it was perfect as the weather is starting to have a bit of a chill in it. I have been making this recipe for about 15 years, and I got it from a cookbook called Laurel's Kitchen. I like all the potatoes and carrots in this soup--they add a lot of flavor and they also make it a perfect soup for dinner. All you need to do is make some muffins or cornbread and add a salad.
Hearty Pea Soup – From Laurel’s Kitchen
1. Prepare veges: (1) Chop up 1 onion(2) Chop 1-2 carrots (3) Chop 3 stalks of celery(4) Cube 2 potatoes.
2. In a crock pot: Add 8 cups of water, 2 cups of dried peas, and all the vegetables. Stir in 2 t salt, and ¼ t pepper. (I add a bit more salt)
3. Half an hour before serving: Stir in ½ t basil and ½ t thyme and adjust any seasonings. You may need to thin with more water. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. You can also put this on the stove; you just have to watch it so it doesn't scorch on the bottom.
