“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!”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  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.

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 sized 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!

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's what I did differently: in place of the onion, sauteed a full container of Trader Joe's Mirepoix (celery/carrots/onion) for a looong time, until the onions caramelized (the 2T oil was ample); used half yellow & half green split peas (because that's what I had); finally, when adding the last of the potatoes & carrots (to an almost full pot with no room for any ham), added 2 tsp. Smoked Paprika, 1 tsp. coarse salt, & one 14.5 oz. can chicken broth. With some buttered rye bread, it was a perfect meal...can't wait for lunch tomorrow. Thanks, Jan :)

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 version, and the only one I make now.
