Well, thank you very much Colleen!<br/><br/>I was going to make split pea soup but I forgot to get my peas soaking before I went to work.... your recipe literally saved our tea! <br/><br/>The ingredients were so simple that I had them all in stock (phew!), but not so simple as to create a tasteless soup. In fact this recipe created something the complete opposite of tasteless, its simply divine!<br/><br/>I served mine up with a sprinkling of smoked paprika and some freshly baked, warm wholemeal rolls. Delish! <br/><br/>I also used soya milk and a splash of soya cream instead of replacing the normal milk with broth. Worked well!<br/><br/>F.G.<br/>(

Very good! I didn't add as much carrott and added a little more onion. I also processed all of the soup in the food processor. Will fix again!
