Split Pea Soup

7 Dec

This Split Pea Soup Recipe is not like you average canned soup.  It is thick, flavorful, and fills your belly.  Super easy to make, this is the perfect winter soup.

There seems to be a love/hate relationship with Split Pea Soup.  I happen to love it, my husband, not so much.  However, since I find Split Pea Soup to be amazing and a super winter comfort food, I’m going to share my recipe with all the other people who love and appreciate the soup as much as I do.

This Split Pea Soup Recipe is not like you average canned soup.  It is thick, flavorful, and fills your belly.  I used to think Split Pea Soup would be a pain to make, but it is incredibly easy taking little effort.  Using nice, meaty ham hocks or ham bone is the key to making a terrific soup.  Even though I use the term “meaty” you might not actually get all that much meat off the bones.  You should get about a 1/4 to 1/2 a cup if your lucky.  But, that’s ok.  You don’t want your soup to be overloaded with meat, just some delicious pieces distributed throughout.

      I think you’ll enjoy the soup very much. Sometimes I think the green color turns people off before they even give it a chance, but it is so tasty. Using smoked ham hocks really adds the flavor to the soup.
