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.

Wow! It's a soaking wet, windy January day here in Scotland and this soup has just cheered me up so much. I had no hot sauce, so put in a bit of chilli powder and it's delicious. The peas could have done with cooking for a bit longer than recommended in the recipe, but that can be done next time. Mmmmmm!

There's nothing better on a frigid day in Montana than to have the wood stove cranked up and a pot of split pea soup simmering on the stove... I add more garlic, bay leaves, chopped carrots, sliced celery, and diced Yukon Gold potatoes to my soup --- my kitchen smells ~W~O~N~D~E~R~F~U~L~

This was really good I will make it again often.Thank you so much for this easy and healthy soup.It was simple to convert to vegan and it was just packed with flavor.The oregano is what sends this right over the top.I would never have thought to use it in peas.Yum.

This soup is great! I wasn't sure that oregano and thyme would be the best compliments to split peas, but I was wrong. The flavors blend beautifully, and it's so healthy!

Simple and delicious. Thanks for posting! By the way, I found that 1 tsp of oil was enough for sauteing the onions, and I wound up cooking the split peas for more than an hour (maybe 1 hour, 20 minutes).

Easy to make and tastier than I expected. I used a fresh chili pepper instead of hot sauce, and didn't have quite enough chicken broth, so topped up with veg broth. I threw it all in the crockpot, and went to work. On my return, it was cooked to perfection. Thanks for the recipe!
