A great winter soup. Carrot, onion and celery is combined with two types of split peas, yellow and green, in this easy to make recipe.
Make this soup vegan by using vegetable stock.
Mmmmm... best ever indeed. It came out yummy. I did not puree the soup at the end because I liked the chunkiness. Also, it looked ready after only an hour, and the peas were all soft, so I took it off the heat. Recommended! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This soup was wonderful. I had never had split pea soup that did not call for ham so I was concerned that it would not have enough flavour. I was quite surprised. I just put all the ingredients in a crockpot except for the oil and the salt free seasoning blend (I didn't have any). I only used green peas and I doubled the recipe except for the water. I used 12 cups of water instead of 16. I also used Wyler's Shakers stock that is chicken garlic and herb flavour. Then I slow-cooked it for 6 hours. It came out great. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This was easy and good, and just the right thickness. I used all green split peas, and didn't have any salt-free seasoning (such as Mrs. Dash) on hand, so I just used about 2 t. curry powder and 1/4 t. black pepper for seasoning. I like a little texture in my pea soup, so I only pureed about 3 c. of the soup in the blender, then added it back to the pot. Thanks for the recipe. - 29 Sep 2008
