Got one of those cool hand blenders? It comes in handy for this recipe, which requires the split peas to be smashed into a smooth consistency, just like the original. If you don't have a hand blender, also called a stick blender, a standard blender works just fine. This soup is very tasty and very low in fat. And the barley gives it a special chunky texture and nutty flavor that isn't found in most pea soups.

Easy, straightforward recipe. Needs some salt and pepper added to taste at the end. I wonder if the people who ended up with watery soup covered the pots while cooking the peas and barley. I simmered both with out the lids and the liquid reduced perfectly.

agreed, too much water. I ended up seasoning with ham base and added some inst mashed potatoes to thicken it up. Next time less water, and up the broth - 4 cups total. I will make this again and add some cubed ham
