SMASHED SPLIT PEA AND BARLEY SOUP 

  • 3 Tabs. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups sliced celery
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. tamari
  • 1 Tab. dry white wine
  • 2 cups dried green split peas
  • 1/3 cup dry pearl barley
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp. liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper

 Saute onion, carrots and celery in the olive oil until softened.  Add garlic and cook another 30 seconds.

 Add rest of ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until everything is tender.

 Remove bay leaves.  With an immersion blender, “smash” half of the soup to make it creamy but leave some texture.
