    P4's Note:

    A wonderful, simple soup, which can easily be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth for the chicken broth. I like to garnish with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of chopped chives or parsley. Beer is an excellent accompaniment to this soup.

      GREAT soup! I didn't have celery, so I added an extra turnip. A great thing about this recipe is the versatility. Non-fusiness is something I can really appreciate. I doubled the allspice and used 1/2 tsp dried thyme. Makes an even better bowl the next day. Thanks!

      A very nice soup. I actually don't think I've ever had split pea soup before, but its good! I left out the parsnip (none at the store) but I added an extra stalk of celery and half a carrot to compensate (plus my celery was small). I also added a clove of garlic. I didn't puree all the soup- just a couple cups to make it creamy but still let it have texture. I found that the amount of spices called for weren't flavorful enough for my tastes- I added a lot more thyme and allspice to taste. Served with sour cream and thinly sliced scallions and The Sebastian (#79566) on the side. Good dinner! Thanks P4.
