This had great flavor, but was too thin for us. I would use maybe 2 qts of water instead of three to start and add more if needed later. The caramelized onions were a bit of extra work, but really added a nice flavor to the soup.

We liked the veggies and my kids liked the potatoes. Nothing like a good soup on a cold winter day. Great filling soup after a day of running around.

Made this as given, & we loved the veggie combo & everything else about it! The only slight change I made was to use lemon pepper instead of the indicated pepper! Very, very tasty & a nice keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

I usually don't make pea soup with potatoes and carrots , but this was a nice touch. Great combo of spices here, as we all enjoyed this very much. I did add an extra tespoon of butter, per request but it definately did not take away the flavor. Great recipe!! Made for PRMR tag.

When I saw the last line in your description I understood why the soup was like this. I would expect the restaurant version to be more dressed up. At first I was upset that it took away from the taste that I knew,but afterwards my taste buds were quite happy to find a little taste of garlic,bay leaf.Just enough spices and I just realised that I forgot the sugar and butter, but it was fine even without it.

This got top marks from everyone in my house. Pea soup is the ideal thing for a filling cold weather soup. The kind of thing that we all start craving when the thermometer drops. I don't recall adding spuds to pea soup soup in the past but they fit in quite nicely. It's also a good way to get a bit of veggies into guys who think they are un-manly *sheesh!*. I skipped the oil, butter, sugar and vinegar. We all loved it.

Made for holiday Tag. I make pea soup often in Fall and Winter so I knew this would be a hit. Adding in the red potatoes was a nice touch...hearty and a real comfort food.
