I love soup. One of the reasons fall and winter are great times of year is that soup is almost always right! Even in Orange County, CA! I love pea and bean soups and have another recipe for Split Pea Soup on the blog but in this version, I use Trader Joe’s 10 Minute Barley in place of the potatoes and leave out some of the seasonings.

When making this soup, it is always about desired consistency. I used 8 cups of water/stock but you can always opt for more or less. It is all up to you and your personal preferences. I recommend starting out with 6 cups and adding more, a little at a time.

This soup can also be made in the crock pot and the dried, split peas can be soaked overnight to cut down on cooking time.

Any questions/comments, please let me know.
