This soup is fabulous.....so easy and so tasty.....I can hardly stop eating it! Thanks!
My son and husband love this recipe.
Delicious was the buzz word at dinner! I chose this recipe because it was easy and had a few ingredients. This was the perfect, thick split pea soup! I used a ham steak in place of the bone, and halved the onion and celery instead of dicing for a smoother soup. After reading the reviews about watery-ness, I used 4 cups peas. That was perfect. Also, I only needed to cook for 2 hours, and added a couple spoonfuls of chicken and beef base. Thanks for sharing!
