Hands down my all time favorite soup. Split Pea Soup is made with a handful of ingredients and is simply perfect on a cold wintery day.

yellow split peas
Place split peas in a bowl and cover them with warm water, set aside. Add beef and water to pot. Bring to a boil and as soon as it boils pour the water out and add 2 more liters cold water. Bring to a boil again.
As soon as it boils reduce heat to low and add carrot, celery and onion. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
Add split peas and continue to simmer until they are soft, 1-2 hours. When split peas are almost fully cooked add salt, pepper and 2 bay leaves. When fully cooked remove onion, celery and bay leaves (can keep carrot in - optional).
