“A wonderful wintertime pea soup with turmeric, adding a nice bright, cheerful color to the soup. This recipe is versatile, can easily be doubled and more veggies and ham can be added as desired. It is a great way to use the rest of that spiral ham; just be sure to trim all the fat. Adjust water and stock as needed. Especially if reheating, more stock or water should be added. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy!” - by JAN
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat olive oil in a heavy soup pot or Dutch oven; cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir herbes de Provence, turmeric, bay leaves, and cayenne pepper into the vegetables; cook and stir until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Mix dried split peas, half the carrots, half the potatoes, vegetable stock, and water into vegetables and seasonings, bring to a bowl, and reduce heat to low. Cover pot and simmer until peas are nearly tender, about 35 minutes. Stir remaining half of carrots and potatoes and the ham into soup, cover, and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 25 more minutes.

"OK, you had me at "French". And "herbes de Provence". Not to mention the tumeric. I love split pea soup, and this did not disappoint. I prepared as written with the exception of using two medium s..." See moreized potatoes, peeled and diced, and about half of the carrots called for. I added them in after the boil down to simmer, and just let it go for a hour and a half. Delicious. Perhaps not as "hearty" as the submitter intended, but excellent none the less!"
"this was wonderful! i used curry powder in place of the turmeric and a no-salt blend in place of the herbes de provence, just due to what i had on hand in my pantry...it might seem like a lot of liqui..." See mored, but the way the potato and peas break down into it thicken it so much that without the high liquid content, it would get too thick and scorch. have made it twice now and look forward to making it again!"
"The soup may not be the prettiest bella at the ball, but it was well worth the work. It did take longer to get the peas to soften but the overall flavor was really nice, DO add the ham...it adds soo m..." See moreuch richness to the dish. And ignore the not soo appealing color from the turmeric....it's still good. And I had to use russet potatoes because my store was out of new potatoes but otherwise, didn't change a thing but would suggest adding a pinch of salt. Everyone in my house enjoyed it, and I mean everyone. Will make again."
