How to Make It

Step

In a large heavy pot, heat the oil over medium high heat until hot. Stir in the onions, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the carrots, celery, stock, turkey carcass, and split peas and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the split peas are very soft and falling apart, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove the turkey bones and return any meat to the pot. Sea-son the soup with salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
