2 cups diced potatoes, skin on
12 ounces yellow split peas (1-1/2 cups)
5-6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 tsp onion powder

Place the canola oil in a large soup pot or Dutch-oven style pan. Heat over medium-high. Add the onion and saute until golden, about 2-3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Bring to a boil then lower heat to simmer. Cook uncovered until the peas are tender, about 45 minutes. Serve hot.
