    Sue Lau's Note:

    Keep this on hand when you go out jogging or exorcising. Makes a great rib-sticking soup. I sometimes vary the meat ingredients- in the pic posted, I used little smokies and a ham hock, same amounts.

    1. 1
      Wash and sort peas.
    2. 2
      Combine peas, water, salt, pepper, bay leaf and thyme in a large pot or Dutch oven.
    3. 3
      Press cloves into onion, and add to pot (if using a ham hock you may wish to add it now so it becomes more tender- but NOT the smoked sausage, as they split if overcooked).
    4. 4
      Bring mixture to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, about 1 hour.
    5. 5
      Remove the onion and bay leaf.
    6. 6
      Puree soup through a coarse sieve or in batches in the blender (be careful not to burn yourself!); return mixture to the pot.
    7. 7
      (I like to leave a little bit not pureed for texture).
    8. 8
      Add potatoes, ham, sausage.
    9. 9
      leek and celery.
    10. 10
      Simmer uncovered about 25-35 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
    11. 11
      Taste for seasoning and garnish soup with chopped parsley before serving.

      Yum!! It's been so cold here in Mn, and this soup was just the thing to warm the soul! I didn't pureé the soup, just left it as is, and cooked it down a little more. Total time on the stove was about 2 1/2 hours. This gave it the thickness I like, and there was no need for pureéing. I threw in a few carrots too. I used Spanish Chorizo for the sausage (it's what I had on hand) and that gave it a little zing too. Thanks for yet another great recipe, Sue!

      This was absolutely the best tasting pea soup ever! I made it pretty much word for word except that I subbed diced carrots for the celery and leeks. I did puree the soup bvefore adding the meat and veggies and then I cooked it for quite a bit longer than 35 minutes (I cooked for about hour at low heat). The soup is aromatic, rich, warm, filling and tasty. It's meaty and smokey and just plain good! Try it! You'll love it!
