Split Pea Soup:

When you think of split pea soup you may think of the saltyness from the ham bone that you may include to the pot when cooking, but here is a more healthy version that is perfect for your little one.
What you need:
 - Split Peas
 - Water (chicken or veggie stock if desired)
 - Carrots
 - Onions, as desired
 - Cerlery, as desired (they can become stringy so you may want to leave them out)
 - Garlic, as desired
What to do:
 - Add the Carrots, onion, celery and garlic (as desired) to a medium sauce pan with water.
 - Once the water comes to a boil add the split peas.
 - Let it cook until everything is tender (about an hour and a half for the full bag of split peas)
 - Puree to the desired consistency for your little one
*Your cooking time and quantity of liquid will vary based on how much of the split peas you have decided to use.
**Mommy Tip**  
Feel free to replace the veggies noted above with any veggie puree's that you may have in your freezer.
