To reduce or eliminate foaming in a Fagor allow steam to escape for 1-2 minutes (maybe longer for split peas) after putting the lid in place on a boiling pressure cooker. This is done by leaving the lever in the open position (for 1-2 minutes) and then switching it to the closed position. (at least on a Fagor duo)

I also suggest scrolling down this board for a lot of tips. Lots of good information here.

Here is how I like to make split pea soup:

Saute 1/2 to 1 red onion with some garlic
Shred 1 or 2 carrots
Add a half teaspoon of salt

Add ingredients to 3-4 cups boiling water in a pc
Add 1 cup of split peas

Attach pressure cooker lid and sit with lever in open position to allow steam venting for a couple of minutes.

After full pressure is achieved, turn down burner to as low a temp as possible to maintain top pressure. Not sure exactly how long to cook in a 6 quart Fagor but I would guess 20-25 minutes after which you can allow it to de-pressurize on it's own. I recently owned a Fagor duo and it tended to spit out ingredients if I did a running water release of pressure so I do suggest doing a "natural" release.

Hope this helps.
