My husband found this in one of our neighborhood papers and asked me if we could try it. All I can say is this was yummy, and has moved into the true conferred food corner of my hart.

Great healthy soup and easy too! I stuck with the recipe, making just a few minor changes. I don't like celery so I left it out. I used 1 onion, which was probably a little less than 2 cups, Hungarian Paprika, 1/2 yellow & 1/2 green split peas and chick stock made from a paste (I'm currently out of homemade stock). I like the creamy texture so I pureed it all in the food processor and had a taste before putting it away. I'm excited to be taking some to work for lunch tomorrow.
