Split Pea Soup

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

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.

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.
