    Transylmania's Note:

    This is my own spin on my French-Canadian grandmother's pea soup. It's actually about the same, I just never use green split peas because I don't like the color. Serve with some nice homemade bread and you've got a full meal. You can omit the step where you thicken the soup with a roux, but this stabilizes the soup so that it doesnt separate with time.
