Ready in 1 hour 45 minutes

This pea soup is winter comfort food. Cooking fills kitchen with amazing smells. Almost like baking bread.

A favorite we make almost once a week.


1 medium onion; chopped
3 stalks celery; chopped
2 medium carrots; chopped
3 cloves garlic; crushed and chopped
1/2 tsp black pepper; ground
2-3 bay leaves; crumbled
2 tsp paprika; ground
2 cups dry split peas
2 medium potatoes; peeled and diced
2 to 5 cups water or vegetable broth; add as much liquid as needed

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



In a sauce pan, brown onions, 5 min. Add celery, carrots and garlic, and continue to saute, 5 minutes. Add a touch of water as necessary.

Then add split peas, potatoes, water and spices, stir and bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer and cover 1 and 1/2 hours.

Allow to partially cool, and with stick blender partially blend together, leaving a few peas and potato chunks for texture.

Salt to taste and garnish with fresh parsley.

Good suggestion! It's green. :-) - Steve Murch 1m ago

Two cups water is not sufficient for volume of peas and potatoes. Is this a misprint?

You can add more liquid (water or vegetable broth) if necessary. The liquid required will vary a little depending on the size of your vegetables, and how thick you like your soup. - EditorBigOven 3m ago

Tasty (easy to make) soup! I used about 5 cups of water.

This soup was very good; although I did have to add another two cups of liquid (veggie broth). I will definitely make it again smells so yummy while cooking.

This is both a winter and summer favorite. Also freezes very well.
