 Presoak peas, if necessary, according to package directions.  Drain well, if
presoaked.  In a large pot, add water or stock, whole onion, carrot, turnip or
parsnip, marjoram, thyme, and salt.  Cook until peas and vegetables are tender,
about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  Drain well.  Mash peas and vegetables in blender or
press through a sieve.	In a small frying pan, saute the minced onion in butter
until lightly browned; blend in flour and cook about 2 minutes.  Add to blended
peas and vegetables.  Beat until fluffy and serve hot.
