Rich and Thick Split Pea Soup
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 7 hours
Makes6 servings (2-1/4 quarts)
This is very good soup. I made half a recipe on the stove top. I used half oregano and half thyme and added about 1 cup of fresh sliced mushrooms and about 1 cup of cubed potato. The soup took about 40 minutes to cook in a large saucepan. Will definitely make this again.
this was delicious reminded me of my grandmother's. I added amish ham hocks which are basically little 2 pound meat filled ham bones to give it a smoky taste. for those saying not enough flavor or vegan try adding liquid smoke flavoring
Made this tonight as directed. I could have used a little less thyme and added some salt. I do like the texture, but I'm missing the hammy taste from making it with ham bones. Not bad for a non-ham bone split pea soup.
the best I've had. making in the crock pot keeps texture to the peas, they don't turn to mush like when you cook on stove
I use homemade smoked turkey stock in mine, no broth or Canadian bacon. I use chopped carrots and onions, not sauteéd, minimal sea salt and black pepper. Rinse and sort split peas, add to slow cooker. Done in 6 to 8 hours and I found that I didn't need to blend. I created this recipe, never having had split pea soup, much less make it. I took it to church and came back with none. Lots of recipe requests. Husband and dog went gaga for it. It does need thinning if it sits a long time or you have leftovers, I just use water. I have made this vegan too by subbing water for stock, still rave reviews.

Just didn't care for this recipe at all, and I love pea soup.
I made this for friends and they raved about it. One way to kick up the flavor a notch is to add a small pinch of cumin- nice!
This soup was VERY bland, I didn't like the flavor or the texture. It makes 6 servings. I served 4 servings (1 per person. ) My kids didn't like it and I ate it but didn't like it. I threw the left overs away. I won't make this again! I felt like I was eating food at a nursing home.....texture was terrible!
this was good - but needed more flavor. this was 1st time making split pea soup - will search for a better recipe next time.
