Recipe Ingredients for Barefoot Contessa Split Pea Soup

1 cup chopped yellow onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups carrots (3 to 4 carrots)
1 cup potatoes, unpeeled (3 small)
1 pound dried split peas
4 cups chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Barefoot Contessa Split Pea Soup

In a 4-quart stockpot on medium heat, saute the onions and garlic with the olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper until the onions are translucent, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the carrots, potatoes, 1/2 pound of split peas, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 40 minutes. Skim off the foam while cooking. Add the remaining split peas and continue to simmer for another 40 minutes, or until all the peas are soft. Stir frequently to keep the solids from burning on the bottom. Taste for salt and pepper. Serve hot.
