Ahhhh! Just the thing for a chilly January day. I am sitting here in a happy pepper/garlic glow (although, really, this is a fairly subtly spiced recipe.) Like all peas soups, this is better re-heated. I needed to add a bit more salt, probably because I used homemade, unsalted, chicken stock.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the onion in a large non stick saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the onion is wilted and translucent.
  3. Add the garlic, stir and continue to cook for 1 minute.
  4. Stir in the split peas, then the seasonings, hot sauce and the broth.
  5. Raise the heat to medium and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 1 hour, until the soup is fairly thick.
  7. Remove the cover and stir well before serving.
