A favorite soup:

Split Pea Soup (adapted from the cookbook Laurel's Kitchen Recipes)

1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon celery seed

1 cup green split peas
1/4 cup barley or 1/4 cup rice
2 quarts water

2 teaspoons salt and dash pepper or to taste
1 carrot, chopped
3 stalks celery, diced
1 potato, diced
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon thyme

Saute onion until soft in a little water, along with the celery seed.  Stir
in peas, barley or rice.  Add 2 quarts water and bring to a boil.  Cook on
low heat, partially covered, for about an hour and a half.

Add salt, pepper, vegetable and herbs.  Turn heat down as low as possible and
simmer another 30 to 45 minutes.  Thin with additional water or stock as you
like. Makes about 8 to 9 cups.
