Today's Split Pea Soup

  • 1 package green split peas
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • carrots - peeled and sliced into disks
  • potable water
  • thyme
  • small amount of dill
  • small amount of tamari 
  • salt
  • hungarian paprika or cayenne (be careful)
Rinse split peas in the bottom quarter of a largish pot, then add more water to at least 3/4 full. Cook on high. Add a teaspoon or so of salt. When the water boils, turn off the heat and let the peas soak while you cut up the onions and peel and slice the carrots. Skim the foam off the top of the water. Add the onions and turn on the heat again to medium-low. After it has cooked for a while, add the carrots. Once the peas have started to soften, stir in the spices, cook on low for a bit, then let soup stand and cook on residual heat.
