My husband loves split pea soup; thank u for sharing a healthy version! I used dried onion & jarred minced garlic but had no carrots. I also only had chicken broth & used the suggestion to replace 1/2 the water w/ broth. For marjoram, the kitchen dictionary said thyme was a good sub, so that's what I used! I used closer to a cup of lean ham since hubby loves ham, and about an hour was just right to cook the peas. The back of the bag of peas said cooking takes 20-30 min--but an hour worked fine! He enjoyed this with a sandwich; said it needed more salt but he enjoys salty foods LOL! Thanks again for sharing!

Wow! This was so easy and so tasty, loved it. I am on weight watchers, so I really wanted to reduce the fat even further. I used no oil, 1 tbl of onion powder and and 1 tsp. of garlic powder. I used better than boullion ham base in the water insted of the ham. I also used better than boullion vegetable base in water for the broth. After an hour I ended up adding a little more water and cooking about 10 minutes longer to get them the way I like them. Thanks so much- I need to figure out the points.

This split pea soup is so very good, wish I could give it more than 5 stars! I doubled the recipe and used 3 cans of vegetable broth and than finished with the water. Also used matchtick cut carrots and added some celery that I needed to use up. This was very easy to make, tastes and looks like I spent all day making it. My mom also enjoyed this soup very much! Thank you for posting and tweaking this recipe!
