Wintertime French Style Split Pea Soup

"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!"

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

I made this just as written. The only thing we ended up tasting were the herbs. All the other flavors were lost.

My husband does not like split pea soup. So I left out the split peas. I also used the turkey broth that I made and froze from Thanksgiving. This was soooo yummy and hearty! Great with a crusty ...

This was a really tasty pea soup. I had a ham bone and some leftover slices to use up and I am really glad I found this recipe. I did add extra veggies to it (celery) and used better than bull...

Made this recipe just as directed...added the ham, LOVED it!

This is a delicious soup - not your plain old pea soup. The herbs make the soup, and it is truly wonderful! I made this exactly by the recipe... but did not add the optional ham. Hearty and p...

5 stars for the BEST Split Pea Soup I've ever had...much better than the usual sticky stand-up-your-spoon-in-it variety...and definitely not just for Winter! I'm sure great as written, but here'...

This one is a winner! The secret ingredient is really the turmeric. I used to be the only person in my family who loved pea soup until this recipe came along. It's definitely my favorite vers...

Nice recipe. I did like the Turmeric and Cayenne as part of the color and kick it needs to make it special. I also like the idea of keeping it "rustic" by keeping some of the carrots and other i...
