My 3 girls (7,4,3) and I eat Amy's canned split pea soup; this is 1st try at doing it myself. Soaked peas overnight in water. I drained, used about 2 cups of those peas, added about 2/3 box of chicken stock, didn't measure, but almost a whole box (Kitchen Basics brand) and added one finely diced onion, 3 finely diced celery stalks, "pinch" marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper, and one large minced clove of garlic. That is IT. No ham (I don't like to use pork) and no carrots or potato. Simmered for a couple hours (which it will seem like it is too watery), after the peas started to become mush, I pureed in a regular stand up blender, and WOW, let it sit to cool a bit for the kids, and it thickens to perfection-- if you have a picky eater child, ESPECIALLY if they have a hard time eating veggies because of texture, try giving them this! After pureeing the soup (could not taste any individual piece of anything!) the kids LOVED it. ALL 3!! Try it-- poor moms of little picky eaters :)
