"Because I am vegetarian, I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and a dash of smoke flavoring for the bacon. This was a delicious soup, and fairly quick to make, too...." See more"
"Excellent! Instead of bacon I used a leftover ham bone from Thanksgiving. I threw it all in a crockpot, cooked it all day, and then puréed it in the blender. Be very careful how much salt you add ..." See moreas the ham should have most of what you need. Save the salting for last. If you do oversalt, simply mix in small amounts of heavy cream after you purée."
"This recipe got rave reviews from a bunch of my friends who claim to not even like split pea soup. My adjustments were: I dumped everything in a crockpot. No pre-sauteeing, wanted to see how easy I ..." See morecould make it. My other adjustments were similar to other peoples (bouillon instead of broth, no leeks, dried rosemary.) I saw multiple people mention needing to puree this; if you leave it all day in a crock pot this isn't necessary. I also added some green beans, which was a nice touch. All day in a crock pot was fine for the carrots and green beans."
