Fantastic! Used vegetable stock lieu of chicken broth. Reduced stock by 1/2 cup and used white wine. Double the carrots. Add the ham bone. Perfect consistency.
Hey, this looks like a great recipe and I definitely intend to make it. My question is, in addition to the cubed ham, can I also use that big, otherwise useless leftover ham bone to sit in the pea soup in my crock pot, and then take the bone out when I’m done?
Excellent! I added a bit of heavy cream to finish it off and used a stick blender to puree the soup!
I dont put the carrots in the entire time or they melt. And I also use all broth, no water. I take one cup of soup out and put it in a blender so its thicker. Pea soup always thickens more when you chill it. I add more broth or milk/cream to thin it. I love homemade pea soup. I always use leftover ham but the Kielbasa sounds like a great idea.
This is a wonderful thick and hearty soup... perfect to warm you up for the cold weather we're having!! I used 2 bay leaves instead of the rosemary and thyme and used all chicken broth instead of chicken broth AND water. The soup was thick (just the way I like it!) and tasty and super easy to make!! Next time I make it I want to use keilbasa or smoked sausage instead of ham!! The day after I made it..... the leftover soup tasted better to me but was extremely thick and I had to add more chicken broth to it ..... but still very tasty!!

Similar to my recipe, but I use less garlic. And I use leftover bone with meat on and cook until all disintegrates. Serve with chopped green onion and asiago artisan bread.
I made this for supper the other day. Everyone loved it!!
I love split pea soup, and I love this recipe because it is so simple. I've made it several times and have never been disappointed. Unfortunately, I'm the only person in my house that seems to like it. Drives me crazy because I always have so much in left overs. It's a good thing I can freeze it. My only suggestion would be to add a ham hock for some extra flavor. I'm putting this in the crock pot over night tonight, so I can have it for lunch tomorrow.
