      I had to omit the bacon, because of some health issues, but this soup was just fine without it. I used chicken broth and added a bay leaf, some peppercorns and some thyme to the soup as it was cooking as well - I find that those enhance any vegetable soup. The lemon added a lovely bright note, quite nice.

      Simple to make, we enjoyed this very much. I did find my peas took more like 45 minutes to cook, but I had allowed for that. A thick delicious soup with lots of flavour, I was generous with the bacon, forgot the paprika, and sliced some spring onions on top as well, we enjoyed the sharp onion with the soup! I made some garlic bread to go with this and we had ourselves a feast! Thanks for a simple and totally delicious supper, Pat!

      This pea soup was delicious! I decided to cook it in my crock pot so I didn't have to baby sit it. I baked the bacon in the oven so there wasn't any additional mess. I cooked it for 8 hours on low and then used a blender to puree the soup! Made for Potluck tag.

      This is a delicious and hearty pea soup. I omitted the olive oil, diced the bacon and rendered some of the fat. The bacon was then removed and crisped in the microwave while a small amount of the fat was left in the soup pot to add flavor and cook the onions and garlic. I was cautious about the liquid due to one of the reviews but ended up using the full amount called for plus a little extra. The peas did take about twice as long to cook as stated. This was served as suggested garnished with the crisp bacon, paprika and crusty bread.

      I am reviewing this for my DH as he is the one that ate it. Since I don't care for peas! I made this for him today because it seemed easy and I thought he would like the treat. He did say that it was good, but it was missing the ham flavor and he thought it should be thicker. And it needed a longer cooking time. He said the peas that I hadn't pureed were a little undercooked. But thanks for the easy recipe, I will make it again with a few changes!

      A classic soup recipe and VERY much enjoyed today thanks Pat! I LOVE the combination of peas, lentils, bacon and ham together - and this delivered 100% on flavour, colour and texture, absolutely gorgeous! My mum makes a soup very much like this, so this was a treat - we ate this with home-made oat bread and fresh butter. I used some ham stock from the freezer and local smoked bacon lardons. I garnished my soup with fresh curly parsley and did not need to use the paprika, as the soup delivered on flavour already! Made for Holiday Tag and enjoyed SO much - thanks Pat! FT :-)
