Here’s A Peek At What’s Cookin’ In My Kitchen: Pea Soup

When it's cold outside, I make it cozy inside. Here's the latest from my crock pot; a batch of Split Pea SoupWhen it’s cold outside, I make it cozy inside. Here’s the latest from my crock pot; a batch of Pea Soup – or the way I sold it to my 8 year-old, Ham Soup, yum!

This was super easy and so delicious. I put a cup of sorted and rinsed split peas in my crock pot with 6 1/2 cups of water. I turned the crock pot on High. I added 2 teaspoons of Outrageously Garlic by Two Sister’s Gourmet and a couple of tablespoons of dehydrated onion soup mix (I was out of onions and I didn’t have any stock or bullion, so I made do. My first choice is home made stock. When I use bullion, my favorite is Better Than Bullion Brand, Chicken base.They make a wide variety of bases including certified Vegan.)

I cubed some left over ham (about 3/4 lb.) and tossed it in the pot along with a couple of bay leaves. I put the lid on and walked away until the scent of the soup filled the house and called me back to the kitchen (about 2 hours or so). You can omit the ham, but if you leave out the bay leaves, it will never quite taste like Pea Soup.

That’s it. I serve the soup with a grating of Parmigiano-Reggiano to make it irresistible.

This is an awesome product. I’ve used it for years and wouldn’t make my soups with anything else–it is the closest thing to homemade stock that comes in a jar. I would even go so far as to say better than homemade because it makes a more flavorful broth than I can get from using two chickens. Having said all that, this pricing is awful. I buy BTB at my local grocery store (and most carry it now, although that wasn’t always the case) for about 5.39. I came to Amazon hoping for a quantity break but no such luck. My advice is to check your own grocery stores first before you pay twice too much.”

  1. I love pea soup and the great thing of making pea soup is that it is easy and quick to make it. Thank you also for sharing about the price from Amazon.
    • Hi John,

      Me, too! Do you like Spring Pea (fresh pea) soups as well? Or do you prefer Split Pea?

      Bon appétit,
      Lisa
