Mianbao is right. This soup is even better the second day. I loved it. The only critism I have is that it was a little too salty. I might try it with 1 tsp. salt next time and add more, if needed. Thanks for the great recipe, Fruitloop!
Love it!! Great taste and easy to make. What more could you ask for. Mr 4 has numerous food intolerances / allergies and I'm always on the look out for recipes I can make that he enjoys. Well this was one of the quickest meal times he has ever eaten. The soup was so nice that DH and myself also had a small helping each and the rest has been frozen for midweek meals. Can highly recommend.
This is a phenomenal and delicious soup. I used the ham bone leftover from our spiral cut ham for Christmas. I made the base recipe and spices as directed, but I did add 1 cup of carrots and a cup of small diced potatoes. We let it cook for 2 hours instead of 1 which made it a little thicker I think. It was awesome day 1 and incredible day 2.
this is really good! delicious an hour after i started cooking it. if it really gets a LOT better the next day, we are stoked because it's already amazing. thanks for sharing!
I tried for the first time split pea soup many years ago and instantly fell in love with it. I don't remember where it was exactly, but since then, I have tried it at several places and didn't seem to be the same. When I came across this recipe, I had to give it a try. It was as good as I remember the first time I had it. It was easy to make, and I am a novice cook. Most importantly I have been trying to cook low calorie, low fat and this fit the bill. I did use less salt than recommended, only one teaspoon and it was perfect. There were about a hand full of dried split peas left in the bag when measuring so I added that too. Everybody went wild over it! I wanted to save some for the next day and see how much better it got but only managed to scrape up one cup, that's how good it was! Thanks so much FrootLoop, awesome recipe.
I wanted to be sure I was judging this soup fairly, so I waited over a day to come to my conclusion, which is, it's delicious! If I had written this review yesterday I would have said it needed garlic or something to bring the flavor together. Now, with only time added, it tastes luscious. I'm glad I waited for it. Thank you very much for this recipe.
