Split Pea Soup

1 ( 16-oz ) Package Yellow Split Peas, Rinsed
1 Quart Low Sodium Vegetable Broth
2 Cups Water
1 Package Dried Onion Soup Mix
1 and 1/2 cups Baby Carrots, Rinsed and Sliced
2 Large Vidalia Onions, Chopped
6 Stalks Celery, Trimmed and Diced
1 Large or 2 Small Leeks, Stripped of Outer Leaves, Rinsed, and Chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
2 Tbsp Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
3 or 4 Tbsp Tamari or Soy Sauce ( I use Braggs Liquid Aminos )
2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to Taste

1. In a large pot, combine peas, broth, water, and soup mix. Stir well. Add carrots, onions, celery, leeks, garlic, mustard, tamari, and balsamic vinegar. If mixture seems too thick, pour in a little more water.
2. Bring to a full boil over medium, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for about 2 hours, stirring and skimming surface occasionally.
3. Remove from heat and let sit for an hour at room temperature.
4. Puree, in several batches in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add pepper to taste. The sodium content made me decide to not add salt.
