The addition of fresh peas and pea pods gives a new twist to this split pea soup.
1. Heat the oil in a heavy 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute, stirring constantly, until the onion is golden, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the water and split peas. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cook 35 to 40 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the peas are soft. Measure the mixture and add water, if necessary, to make 4 cups.
3. Beat the half-and-half into the flour with a wire whisk. Beat the mixture into the soup and cook, beating constantly until the soup thickens and the peas break up. Add salt and pepper.
4. Add the fresh green peas; return to a boil over high heat; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until the peas are tender. Stir in the snow peas; if necessary, add water until the soup reaches the desired consistency. Return to a boil; taste and adjust seasoning; serve.
