How to Cook Split Peas Soup iwith dumplins

As the holidays are approaching, so is the cold weather . It is time to bring out our favorite soup recipes. I wanted to share my delicious "Split Peas soup" cooked in a Presto Pressure Cooker. It is one of my favorite dishes  to stay warm during the cold winter months.

You will need the following ingredients:
1 pack of boneless chicken thighs
1 Pack of frozen gumbo mixed vegetables
1/2 Pack of split peas
1 pack of Grace Jamaican dry chicken soup mix
2 Small cans of chicken broth
1 large Celery branch finely chopped
1 hand full of parsley finely chopped
4 Large green onions chopped
1 medium onion chopped
1 large red hot pepper
2 tbsp of green seasoning
1 pack of sazon

Overnight Prep:
In a separate bowl add
1/2 of a green bell pepper chopped
1/2 of an onion finely chopped
3 scallions finely chopped

Cut chicken thigh into medium cubes
Soak in a bowl of cool water with 1/3 cup of vinegar for 5-10 minutes
Remove from the vinegar solution and rinse in cool water
Place the chicken into a bowl and add the following:

1 Sprinkle of seasoning salt
2 tbsp of green seasoning

3 dashes of garlic powder
2 dashes of scallion seasoning (optional)
1 Pack of sazon (the orange packet)
Add 1/2 of the bowl of chopped vegetables
Massage all the seasonings and chopped vegetables into the chicken thighs

Cover the bowl and chill overnight to induce the flavors

Place Split Peas in a large deep bowl
Cover with warm water
Allow it to sit overnight *(it helps the peas to slightly soften for faster cooking)*

Preheat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pressure cooker
Add remaining chopped vegetables
Cook while stirring occasionally until translucent
Add preseason chicken and stir
Cook until it turns slightly brown
Or the seasoned remaining liquid dries out
Drain the split peas and rinse under cool water
Add the peas to the pot 
Add the Jamaican soup mix
Add the frozen vegetable soup mix
Add the remaining chopped seasoning
Add the 2 cans of chicken broth
Add water up to the marked water level in the pressure cooker 
Add whole red hot pepper
Cover and pressure cook for 35minutes
Remove from heat
Place pressure cooker under running cold water
Remove regulator slowly 
Then open the pressure cooker slowly
Remove the hot red pepper to prevent the soup from being spicy
Mix the soup with a spatula
Add a cup of water depending on how thick
You would like your soup
Simmer on low heat for an additional 10 minutes
slightly covered *(do not pressure cook)*
Serve hot with crackers or rolls!
Stay warm this winter!⛄❄❄
