I love pea soup, but I have to say, this was the BEST I've ever tasted! I substituted 4 of the 8 cups of water with low-sodium chicken broth, omitted the bullion and cooked it for 4 hours because I like it thick and mushy. It was awesome! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!!
Thank you for this recipe! I made it "as is" and thought it was excellent.
I live in Florida, and it's 37° right now, at 9 a.m. This sounds perfect for dinner tonight! I'm wearing a sweater and leggings! That never happens here on the west coast of Florida. I can't wait for dinner! Thank you.

Delicious! I love soup and split pea is always a winner. I did swap out the water for homemade chicken stock that I had on hand. Used more carrots and added parsnips as a personal preference. My crew wants garlic added next time. I served with bacon crumbles, sour cream, fresh grated sharp cheddar cheese and rough cut parsley as toppings if desired. With a fresh crisp salad and some warm bread, a hearty meal to be enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe!
WOW...delicious soup! I have made split pea soup for 40 years but never with these seasonings. Never have seen such a unique recipe and those seasonings are what makes this taste so good I'm sure. I also don't like the mushy taste of split pea soup but it always seems to go there. ....not this soup. It's very tasty and is now the go-to recipe for split pea soup at my house. I served it with jalapeno/cheese bread.
This soup is just delicious! I made it the other day and am going to make another pot for a girlfriends birthday. She loves soup and l think she'll be so happy with this. Janet. VFE
This is my favorite split pea soup of all I have tried. It's very flavorful and has just the right consistency for me -- not too thick and not to thin. I'm very happy to have found it.
This was awesome! We substituted the water with vegetable broth, and sweet potatoes for regular baking potatoes, added garlic and shortened cooking time to about an hour. No salt is needed at all, this was very flavorful! We used ham and served with warm cornbread! This is a winner!!
I have made this many times since I first saw it years ago in Taste of Home. As I remember it was submitted by a lady from my town of Alta Loma, California--so I had to try it! It is a family favorite many times over. I made it tonight for Christmas Eve, for the first time with bacon instead of ham. Hoping for good results as usual.
