8 cups filtered water

1 bag organic split peas

4 Rapunzel sea salt and herb bouillon

3 medium sized carrots, diced

Add the split peas, water, bouillon, and baking soda (to prevent socially unacceptable wind…lol) and bring to a good simmer. Reduce heat to medium (medium low if your stove runs hot) and allow to simmer for 1-1.5 hours. The soup is done when it has turned unto a puree and there are no discernible peas.

Continue to add a little water as needed if the soup becomes to thick. Stir often to prevent burning, and adjust your temperature up or down as needed to prevent sticking but allow the soup to simmer well.

When the soup is finished, allow to stand for 15-20 minutes to cool. Serve in your favorite mug or deep welled bowls with a garnish of croutons or a sprig of rosemary or thyme. Enjoy!
