 ***Please note that all measurements are approximate.
 3 cups split peas {I used both yellow & green}
    rinse well and let soak in a bowl of salted
    water with a few drops of liquid smoke for 3 or
    4 hours.
 2 onions, finely chopped
 2 carrots, grated
 vegetable stock
 balsamic vinegar
 1 cup frozen peas {optional}
 liquid smoke.
 Saute onions & carrots in a splash of balsamic vinegar.
 Add about 1/4 cup water and 4 or so spoonfuls of vegetable
 stock {or 2 or 3 cubes I suppose}. Turn off heat.
 When peas are finished soaking, rinse well,
 add fresh water to bowl until the peas are covered.
 Place in pot with sauted onions & carrots. Bring
 to a rolling boil, add a few drops of liquid
 smoke,  reduce to medium heat and let cook away
 for an hour or more. Add frozen peas.
 When cooked through I used a potato masher and finished
 mushing up the peas.
 Goes great with fresh homemade bread!
