Dutch Split Pea Soup

Dutch Split Pea Soup created by PalatablePastime

Keep this on hand when you go out jogging or exorcising. Makes a great rib-sticking soup. I sometimes vary the meat ingredients- in the pic posted, I used little smokies and a ham hock, same amounts.

ingredients

directions

  • Wash and sort peas.
  • Combine peas, water, salt, pepper, bay leaf and thyme in a large pot or Dutch oven.
  • Press cloves into onion, and add to pot (if using a ham hock you may wish to add it now so it becomes more tender- but NOT the smoked sausage, as they split if overcooked).
  • Bring mixture to a boil, then lower heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until peas are tender, about 1 hour.
  • Remove the onion and bay leaf.
  • Puree soup through a coarse sieve or in batches in the blender (be careful not to burn yourself!); return mixture to the pot.
  • (I like to leave a little bit not pureed for texture).
  • Add potatoes, ham, sausage.
  • leek and celery.
  • Simmer uncovered about 25-35 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  • Taste for seasoning and garnish soup with chopped parsley before serving.

    Oh yeah,this is great. Especially on a cold winter night (or day,as you like). Unfortunately my half-Egyptian kids don't like it,but I still make it for myself.:-)

    Excellent soup! The changes I made did not touch the 'bones' of the recipe. I used a huge sweet onion--cut chunks from each end and stuck the cloves in those and roughly chopped the rest of the onion. I used a smoked ham hock and some chunks of Virginia ham. I left the onion (but not the cloves) in the soup and cooked it down a bit longer than an hour at which time the peas and onions had already became soup--no need to puree. Along with the listed veg, I added cubed carrots; gave the soup good color and flavor. High marks from and second helpings for every one at the table.

    This was absolutely the best tasting pea soup ever! I made it pretty much word for word except that I subbed diced carrots for the celery and leeks. I did puree the soup bvefore adding the meat and veggies and then I cooked it for quite a bit longer than 35 minutes (I cooked for about hour at low heat). The soup is aromatic, rich, warm, filling and tasty. It's meaty and smokey and just plain good! Try it! You'll love it!
