Questions & Replies

  1. It looks like a cream based soup but I don't see any cream listed in the ingredients. Any thoughts?


  1. I did not use split peas I used green peas and it did not get like chowder and tastes bland.
  2. How could anything this easy be SOOOO-OOO-O Good! "Don't lose this recipe" warned DH. The corn added a nice contrast of texture and taste. We're sold! There was little liquid left, so the faint of heart just need to get over that. TASTE is what it's all about! Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
  3. Followed the recipe & we had a very thick & flavorful soup, although I did use homemade chicken stock in place of the canned stuff! There were just the 2 of us, so I froze the leftovers in 2-serving portions, & that's just the way it should be with our large freezer! Will make this again, for sure!

  4. I prepared this last night and left in on low all day. Very tasty meal to come home to which we enjoyed with crispy warmed ciabatta rolls. I made this pretty much to the recipe, except for omitting the corn which we're not overly fond of, but I did add two diced peppers - one red and one green - 2 leeks and some garlic, and I added rosemary, sage and thyme to the marjoram. It all came to more like eight serves, which I'm happy about as we are looking forward to eating this again soon. Meanwhile, the remaining six serves are in the freezer. Thank you for sharing another yummy recipe, weekend cooker. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
  5. I made this chowder as written - well, almost. I don't have "seasoning salt" and, let's be realistic, the seasonings vary from brand to the next anyhow. So I used Tony Chachere's creole seasoning. But the basic recipe is perfect as written. I love how the split peas breakdown as they cook and make a nice thick chowder. I used green split peas. The photos look like yellow split peas. I don't think it matters which you use. I just think peas should be green.
