    Split Pea Soup - vegetarian and gluten free

    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 Onion, chopped (can substitute leeks or just omit if onions and/or leeks bother your IC)
    1 Bay leaf
    2 Cloves garlic, minced
    2 Cups dried split peas, sorted and rinsed
    1 - 2 cups cooked brown rice
    7 1/2 C water
    3 Carrots, chopped
    3 Stalks celery, chopped
    3 Potatoes, diced (I find red or gold potatoes taste better than russet)
    1/2 C chopped parsley
    1/2 Tsp dried basil
    1/2 Tsp dried thyme
    Sea salt to taste
    Pepper to taste (if it doesn't bother your IC)

    In a large pot, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until onion is translucent. If you can't have onions, just omit them. Add the water, bay leaf and peas. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until peas begin to soften.

    Add the carrots, celery, potatoes, parsley, basil, thyme, sea salt and pepper. Simmer until veggies are tender.

    Add cooked brown rice.

    You could certainly use dry rice instead of cooked- about 1/4 - 1/2 cup dry- and add it when you put the vegetables in the pot. I like to multi task and often get distracted and forget to stir. Adding the rice pre-cooked at the end prevents it from sticking to the bottom and burning from neglect

    This is one of the few IC friendly foods I make that the whole family likes. Well, except for the oldest daughter, but she hates everything I hope you enjoy it!
