Perfect Split Pea Soup

Perfect Split Pea Soup
Recipe courtesy of myrecssionkitchen on Tasty Kitchen

2 cups green split peas
10 cups of water
6 whole carrots, washed and cut in rounds
2 whole yellow onions, diced
1 stalk celery chopped finely
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons ground black pepper

Put the peas and water in a large pot.  Turn the heat on high and bring to a boil.  While you are waiting for the water to boil, add the vegetables and stir.  Add the herbs, salt and pepper, and stir again.  When soup comes to a boil, turn it down to low and simmer for at least one hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so.  You may want to add another cup or so of water depending on the consistency you desire.
