Delicious split peas are simmered in vegetable stock with dried sage, carrots and pasta shapes, for a vegetarian split pea soup. If you like meat, feel free to add it.
This is simple to cook and very tasty, and you can easily alter it to your particular tastes. - 13 May 2010
Used different ingredients. I used leeks instead of onions, and used half chicken and half vegie stock as I find some vegie stocks a little too salty if you want to add bacon, which I did. Otherwise, it's a lovely tomato-ey hearty soup and my husband had 2 bowlfuls and said, make more! Also, I ALWAYS rinse, soak and boil split peas beforehand, it saves so much mucking around afterwards as you can remove all the foam and extra starch before you add the other ingredients. - 13 May 2010
Made this for a cold sunday evening, even the kids loved it. - 02 Aug 2009
