  • Preparation Time10 mins
  • Cooking Time90 mins
  • DifficultyEasy
150g chopped yellow onions
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
30ml good olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
300g medium-diced carrots (3 to 4 carrots)
150g medium-diced red boiling potatoes, unpeeled (3 small)
200g dried split green peas
2L chicken stock or water
1) Place the olive oil in a 4-litre stockpot on a medium heat, and saute the onions, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper until the onions are translucent, for 10 to 15 minutes.

2) Add the carrots, potatoes, split peas and the chicken stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer uncovered for 40 minutes.

3) 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.

4) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
