Here's another bean-type recipe that my family loves.
1 1-lb bag of split peas
1-3 sliced carrot (depending on the size – I use at least 3 large)
2-4 stalks of celery – chopped
1 med-lg Onion – diced
2 lg turnips – diced – optional
48 oz. broth (I use homemade veg broth - the original recipe calls for chicken broth)
4 c. Water
2 Tsp each: Basil, garlic, salt (I omit), pepper
Sauté onion and celery to slightly soften, add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and cook until the split peas fall apart. This can also be cooked 8-10 hours on low in a crock pot (but I’ve never done it).
p.s. To soak or not to soak??? I soak most beans, but I only rinse and soak split peas and lentils for a couple of hours.
