2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery and sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute longer.

  2. Pour in vegetable broth and water. Add split peas, bay leaves, smoked paprika, and thyme. Season lightly with salt and with pepper to taste.

  3. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to low. Cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally until peas are tender, about 30 - 40 minutes.

  4. Add carrots and potatoes to soup. Cover soup and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until peas have mostly broken down, about 20-30 minutes longer.
