  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup small yellow onion, diced, about ½ to ¾ cup
  • 16 ounces dried green split peas
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup dry white wine, you can use water
  • 2 cups carrots, sliced, about 1
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke
  • ¼ teaspoon marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon parsley


  • In a large soup pan heat the oil and saute the onion for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the split peas, broth (and wine if you are using it), carrots, bay leaf and black pepper.
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Add the liquid smoke, parsley, and marjoram.
  • Turn down to a medium-low simmer and cook for about 1 ½ hours
  • Stir every once in a while to keep from sticking.  You can add more broth if you think it is too thick.
  • When the split peas are done let them cool a little bit before putting into a blender or using an immersion blender.
  • Remove the bay leaf.
  • Put the soup in a blender (I did this in 2 batches) and blend until the soup is smooth (or almost smooth, depending on your taste).  Serve while hot.
