Split Pea Soup with Herbes de Provence

This is one of my very favorite soups! Since split peas require no soaking, they are perfect for last-minute soups.


1 Tbs safflower or canola oil

1 Tbs finely minced garlic

2 cups coarsely chopped onions

1 tsp each dried basil, oregano and rosemary leaves

1 tsp whole fennel seeds

1 large bay leaf

2 large carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices

2 large celery ribs, diced

6 cups boiling water or vegetable broth

2 cups dried green split peas, picked over and rinsed

1/4 cup inced fresh parsley

Salt to taste
