Split Pea Soup


3/4 cup hulled barley
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chopped carrots
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 quart vegetable broth
1 cup dried split peas
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried chipotle chile pepper
salt and pepper to taste


1. Bring a medium-size pot of salted water to a boil, add barley and cook until done (about 30 min). Drain well.
2. In a large skillet, saute onion, celery, garlic, and carrots in olive oil for 5 minutes.
3. Place vegetables, vegetable broth, peas, thyme, chile pepper, salt and pepper in a pressure cooker. Cover. When pressure cooker reaches full pressure, cook for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the pressure cooker from the heat. Add cooked barley and serve.
4. Note: If you would like creamier soup, puree soup in a food processor or blender. Add additional broth to bring the soup to the consistency you desire.
