This started out as a clean-out-the-cupboard-and-fridge soup and ended as the world's easiest (not to mention healthier) gumbo. The split peas (which I never really liked before) magically create the thickness, color, and flavor you traditionally get from roux, sautéed peppers, and celery, gumbo file powder, and rice - without including any of them. This tastes even better the next day, as the peas continue to collapse and thicken the broth.
