    Debbie R.'s Note:

    This one is simple and inexpensive. My husband liked it a lot. He walked in while it was cooking and said, "Mmm". Normally, he would not touch split pea soup. It's practically vegetarian too--no bacon or ham hocks to touch--and yet still tastes great. Biscuits go really well with this. In fact, I think you need them to make a filling meal.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sort and wash peas. Put them and everything else in a large pot.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for two hours, stirring often.
    3. 3
      Remove bay leaf before serving. A very little salt or salt substitute enhances the flavor.

      This soup is incredibly simple to make. I love recipes where u can throw it all in a pot and let it go! I added sliced smoke turkey sausage to mine, some cajun seasoning and a couple splashes of tabasco for a little kick. Being from louisiana, we like it hot! Came out incredibly good, and love that you can have a second bowl without the guilt.

      Absolutely delicious soup. I prepared the soup, put it on the stove, gave my son & hubby instructions to give it a stir every 15 to 20 minutes, then I left the house for a little over an hour. Upon returning I was greeted by the most fantastic smell, I knew supper was ready! Only changes I made were to delete the olive oil and add a beautiful turkey leg to add a little extra protein to the soup. Made to help take the chill off a 29 degree Michigan winter evening. We will definitely be making this again.

      Made just as directed with the exception of the olive oil which I omitted. This is the first time that I've made pea soup with chicken stock and the flavor was really enjoyed although I believe that I'll use veggie broth next time. It's a stress free soup to make, just put it all into the pot and check it once in awhile. I cooked mine longer than ask but we like pea soup on the thick side. I would say that this makes 6-8 servings, if you make it into just 4 your going to need really big bowls :D. Made for Photo Tag.
