Instructions

Heat oil in large soup pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and carrot. Saute for 5-7 minutes, or unitl the onions are clear and carrots are soft. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for another 2 minutes. Add the squash, split peas, broth, and seasonings to the pot, along with 2 C water. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer. Cover and simmer for 45-55 minutes, or until split peas are tender, but still retain their shape. Uncover, taste, and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve chunky or use an immersion blender to blend to desired consistency.

    I made this today for lunch. I used a immersion blender and the soup came up very thick. I add some more water and a small amount of chilli to give the soup a kick. It was delicious served with natural yoghurt stirred through as a swirl in the bowls with fresh finely chopped coriander as a garnish. I would make this again.
