Directions

  1. Place split peas, water, ham bone, shallots, carrots, celery leaves, bay leaf, salt, garlic and pepper into a large pot. Heat to almost boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until the peas are tender. Remove the ham bone and the bay leaf. Dice the meat from the ham bone and set aside.
  2. Cut the cream cheese into cubes. Process cream cheese with the soup in small batches in a blender or food processor.
  3. Add ham, and reheat. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary.

You know, I've been visiting allrecipes.com since I was a wee lad of 17 years old. Currently, I'm a wee lad of 22 years old, heh. However, never ONCE have I felt the urge to rate/review a recipe (even become a member) until I tasted this. I'm from the good 'ol South, so I've made PLENTY of split pea soup. It replaced Ramen noodles during my college years. I've recreated almost every split pea recipe on this site; I even created a few variations of my own. THIS recipe, though, beats the split peas outta EVERY recipe I've made. I followed the recipe verbatim, except for a few small changes. I used one stalk of celery instead of leaves and real garlic instead of granulated. I also whisked in the cream cheese instead of blending it (no ugly color, just magically delicious green-ness). All the reviewers who have stated this recipe isn't for them, well, they just didn't make it correctly. MAKE IT. EAT IT. You won't regret it.

I've used this recipe several times and am never dissapointed. I have been asked to share the recipe many times. Thanks for posting it! FYI to all - the recipe calls for 2.5 cups of peas - that's a 16oz. bag.

Very Good! I liked this recipe because of the cream cheese--I was looking for something creamy. I omitted the ham, just because we didn't have any. I used 5 c. chicken stock & 3 c. water to add more flavor (instead of all water). And I sauteed the garlic and onion (white onion) in olive oil while I chopped up the carrot. I like the flavor of sauteed onions and it also is easier to digest. In the end it was delicious and very cheap. ;-) I will make this again, especially during the winter.
