I love pea soup and I've just made the best I've ever eaten. This stuff is stellar! I like dipping buttered bread and so left out the rice. I wanted to have some, thinly sliced carrots, in the finished product, and so did the following. Halved two carrots and threw them in for the two hour cooking process. They were removed and discarded with the bay leaf. I then sliced two fresh carrots and threw them in, with the shredded hock, for another 15 minutes of cooking. Perfect!
I will be making this recipe for the rest of my life and only wish I could give it six stars. It's just that good!
This is so good! Everyone loved it, even if they were a bit hesitant to try pea soup! :) Thanks!!
who would have thought something so simple as pea soup could be so good! thanks!
This is the first soup I have ever made and it came out great! The left overs were a bit thick, I think I might have put in to much rice and probably could have added a little more water.
Another winning recipe Kittencal. We loved this soup. Found adding the rice and peas was a nice touch. So very easy to make with an abundance of flavor. A soup we certainly enjoyed with these cold temperatures upon us. Thanks for sharing
I have made split pea soup in the past but this surpassed them all, my husband doesnt take soup to work, well he took this 2 days in a row, need I say more.....
Really excellent. I added a tablespoon of whole peppercorns to simmer with the soup. They provide a nice bite.
This is the best pea soup I have ever had! I have made this recipe about three times now. Whenever I bake a ham, I find myself starting to crave this pea soup. I don't bother pureeing the soup, as I like some texture to it. I also don't bother with the cream, but I do like to add lots of fresh black pepper.
This is seriously the best freaking soup. I have made it countless times and it tastes like it SHOULD be incredibly unhealthy. But it's not. Use brown rice for a bit more texture. Thank you for this amazing recipe!
I have tried a few recipes for this soup and was ready to give up. Kittencal, this stuff is fabulous! Its so easy and so very, very good. I may not put the rice in, my sampling tells me it is great as is. Love it, thx so much for sharing! Only change is I used yellow peas, just like the color better, haha :)
