Great way to get your veggies in!
Warm the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, bay leaf, and minced garlic. Saute for 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent.
Add split peas, barley, sea salt, and water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Add chopped carrots, chopped celery, diced potatoes, chopped parsley, basil, thyme, and pepper. Let simmer for another hour (or until peas and vegetables are tender).
