    Thick and Hearty Split Pea Soup

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    2 Med onions -- chopped
    2 cloves garlic -- minced
    3 carrots -- diced
    3 ribs celery -- chopped
    2 cups dried split peas -- checked carefully for debris and rinsed
    6 cups water -- (6 to 8)
    2 medium potatoes -- coarsely chopped
    1 large bay leaf
    1/2 teaspoon celery seed
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon liquid smoke -- (1 to 2) (or to taste)
    2 teaspoons Salt
    freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
    Lightly spray the bottom of a pressure cooker or Dutch oven with canola oil. Sauté the onions for about 5 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan often, until they begin to caramelize. Add the garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 2 more minutes.
    Add the peas to the pot. If you're using a pressure cooker, add 6 cups of water; for regular cooking, add 8 cups water.
    Stir in the potatoes, bay leaf, celery seed, basil, and thyme.For pressure cooking: Seal the cooker and bring to high pressure. Lower heat and cook at high pressure for 6 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the pressure to come down naturally. If beans are not completely cooked, cover loosely and cook (without pressure) until they reach the desired tenderness.
    For regular cooking: Bring to a boil, cover, and cook over very low heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until peas are soft and disintegrate when stirred.
    For both methods: When the beans are done, add the liquid smoke, salt, and pepper. Check the seasoning and add more herbs if necessary. Cook several minutes uncovered to thicken (or add water to thin). Serve with warm whole-grain bread.Makes about 8 servings, and tastes even better the next day!

    The first time I made this I left out the liquid smoke but the second time I added it. My personal preference is to leave it out. It took 30 min. including coming to pressure. The actual cook time was 5 min. If I had used hot water it would have taken less time to come to pressure.
