This is an adopted recipe. When it gets colder I look forward to trying it and adding any thoughts. Looks healthy and good, though.

This soup is DELICIOUS!! I did not add the topping because I prefer just the soup by itself. I also omitted the cumin because I am not a fan of that particular seasoning, but wow, this was delicous and hearty. I have made 2 batches already, I can't get enough of it. I did add a bit of diced potatoes and I might try adding a touch more broth (maybe 3/4 cup) because I like a bit more 'soupiness' to my split pea soup, rather than more of a porridge type. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. So easy in my dutch oven--no boiling or soaking, just throw it in there and let it cook. Smelled wonderful too!

What a perfect cold-weather soup! I appreciated how easy it was to throw together, and it's healthy, too. I think this would be good in slow-cooker, too. Thanks for sharing!
