Sweet Potato and Split Pea SoupIngredients:
3-5 cups of water, approximately
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut
2 cups of dry split peas, soaked for 2 hours
1/2 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
2-3 stalks of carrots, chopped up
2-3 bay leaves
handful of fresh sage
1/4 teaspoon of dill
Soak the beans for 2 hours or until tender. Add 3 cups of water to a pot on a low flame. Cut up the garlic and onions and add them to the pot. Let boil and add the split peas, bay leaves, sage and dill. Cover and let cook for 30 minutes. Cut up the potatoes and the carrots and add them to the pot. Add some salt and pepper and cover for another 30 minutes. Check on the soup periodically, stirring and tasting as you go. After about 45 minutes (or when peas are completely tender), let cook and then turn off the flame. Use a hand blender or place into a blender and puree the soup. Enjoy!
