  1. Step 1

    Place the broth, water, onions, celery, carrots, and garlic in a large stockpot over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  2. Step 2

    Add the dried split peas, turn down the heat, and simmer for 35 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the peas are very soft. Add salt, cumin, red pepper powder, and black pepper to taste.
  3. Step 3

    Using a potato masher or the back of a metal spoon, mash the peas for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the soup is creamy, adding more water as necessary. Alternatively, you can choose to purée a little more than half of the soup in a blender and then mix it with the un-puréed portion.
  4. Step 4

    Add more salt and pepper to taste and serve hot with bread or rice.
