Ready in 1 hour 40 minutes
Thick, warm and great on a cold day. Filling and healthy enough for the family.
"Easy to make, definitely. I was at first not sure about the addition of carrot and potato, but they ended up being great compliments! I used some smoked ham hocks, about 2lbs worth, and added a little extra water, maybe 1 extra cup. I felt it needed quite a bit of salt and pepper, and some additional garlic, but I also like my pea soup well peppered. My girlfriend loved it with no additional seasoning, however.
Over an easy and very worth-while dish! Would definitely make again. Perfect winter soul food."
Bring the water to a boil then turn down to a simmer and add the peas, water, ham hock (or, if using ham, add it during the last 20 minutes of cooking along with potatoes and carrots), garlic, onion, celery and bay leaf and cook until peas are soft, about 55 minutes. Add potato and carrot (and ham if using that instead of ham hock), and cook an additional 20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
daylightsun 2w agoGreat recipe, remind's me of my Mum's except she did not add potatoe just more carrots and celery and fresh peas at the end along with chopped up mint leave's. Mum allway's used smoked ham hocks for better flavour and she used to cut the ham hocks to the bone with a sharp knife into sections so the meat would fall of the bone.(no mess).I can't believe someone would rate it as 1 star without even making it. 5 Star recipe for sure.
vivshu 1y agoEasy (dare I say) peasy! And tastes awesome, especially on a cold winter evening. I much prefer using a ham hock (I used 2 small smoked ones for this recipe, about a pound in total) instead of adding ham at the end. Adding the ham did not impart that much flavor and at the same time, the ham loses its own flavor quite quickly so it's not that good to eat.
piratedancer 2y agoExcellent recipe! !!
nakeyshanewman 3y agoI didn't like this recipe at all. It was too vague and certainly wouldn't have came out right if I relied on this recipe alone. I ended up looking up other split pea recipes which made my soup come out much better. I wouldn't advise anyone to use this. Find a different one. Luckily, my soup turned out amazing no thanks to this recipe.

gdickens3 4y agoI love split-pea soup and this is fantastic!! .. husband said it was the best he's had and defiantly beats anything canned or prepackaged. This is a great one bowl meal; very hearty.
heidivanleeuwen 4y agoExcellent! I'm Dutch and this is close to the real thing. I added small cubed fennel root and some sprigs from the top. Used smoked ham (on sale because it's just after christmas).. num num
