1 lb bag split green peas
organic extra virgin olive oil (well i do all organic these days,
but i'm not going to keep putting that word in front of the rest of
the ingredients, ok?)
2,3 or 4 tbs minced garlic
about half a white or red fist size onion (my fist), chopped
about half a green pepper, finely chopped
pinch oregano (my pinch)
maybe some adobo (optional)

I'm kind of recently living a bachelor life. i'm also recently
eating more fresh, live high fiber food. i'm not going
vegetarian per se, but i am eating healthier than i ever have.
point is, i bought a bunch of bags of dry beans. now i know
how to make some killer black beans, cause mama taught me
when i was young. had no idea how to make pea soup
though. so my friend said, "just do whatever you always do
with everything; it always comes out great." so i thought, OK,
that means lots of garlic, onion and olive oil. after sauté of
said onion, garlic and pepper in olive oil (at least coat pan- i
use a little more), and adding this standard Shihan sofrito to
my peas and water in the crock-pot, it still seemed like
something was missing. like i said, i'm not a vegetarian yet.
so we added the half rotisserie chicken breast leftover from
lunch. it was a Caribbean marinated breast we had gotten
from the local supermarket's deli that day. when i got up the
next morning, i knew by the smell we were in for a treat! the
chicken fell off the bone and mixed with all the other
ingredients to make the best dam split pea soup i ever had! i
hope you like it too.
