Erwtensoep (Green Pea, Pigs Feet & Frankfurter Soup)

READY IN: 11hrs
Top Review by Barbara in Holland

This is a delicious winter soup. I make mine with ham rather than the pig's feet, but any pork can be used.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook peas in the water until tender.
  2. When peas are tender press mixture through a sieve or whirl in blender.
  3. To this, add pig's feet and simmer for 2 hours.
  4. Add extra water when necessary.
  5. Remove pig's feet, bone and cube meat, and add to soup.
  6. Add bacon.
  7. Clean and slice leaks and onions.
  8. Melt butter and saute leeks and onions until tender but not brown.
  9. Add to soup with parsley, celery, and celery root. Simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
  10. Cut frankfurters into crosswise slices and add to soup.
  11. Remove from heat the let stand overnight. Reheat the next day.
  12. Add salt and pepper.
  13. Stir well since standing will make it thicker, and add a little more water if necessary.
  14. Remove bacon and cut into slices.
  15. Serve bacon slices on pumpernickel with the soup which has been reheated until piping hot. Makes 6 generous servings, for this is served as the whole meal.
