Ingredients
  • 1 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium potatoes, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 3 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 cups dried split peas, checked and rinsed
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat a pressure cooker over high heat. Add the onions and garlic saute for about 5 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan often, until they begin to caramelize. Add the carrots, and celery and cook for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the peas to the pot. Add 3 cups of water and 3 cups of vegetable broth. Stir in the potatoes, bay leaf, basil, and thyme.
  3. Seal the cooker and bring to high pressure. Lower heat and cook at high pressure for 6 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the pressure to come down naturally. If beans are not completely cooked, cover loosely and cook without pressure until they are soft.
