  1. In a pressure cooker over medium heat, saute the garlic, onion and celery in the olive oil for 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Add the peas, broth, bay leaf and ham. Cook under pressure for 10 to 12 minutes. (Note: If you do not have a pressure cooker, cook the peas over low heat for 3 to 4 hours or use a slow cooker.)
  2. Once the peas are soft, stir in the potatoes, carrots and chervil and simmer for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add water as needed to adjust the thickness of the soup.

well, I subbed a diced ham steak for the bacon, and used sodium free stock since I was making this for someone on a VERY low sodium diet. The flavors were actually much clearer w/o the salt, but...

I LOVED this version of Split Pea Soup! I did it in the pressure cooker because I didn't have the time to wait using the conventional method. I needed extra liquid and used both organic chicke...

I basically make the same soup in the oven. Add a ham bone (or not), 2 1/4 cups of split peas, 8 cups of water, veggies and spices, bake covered 2 hours at 350, do not peek. Take out of oven, b...
