Split Pea Soup

split pea soup

Although we are not vegetarians, I’m trying to use less meat and dairy products in our everyday eating, and did pretty well with this lunch. There are shreds of sausage lurking about in there, but mostly the soup is just the split peas, carrots, celery, onions, and red peppers. There is a layer of quinoa in the bottom of the bowl.

Almost every day we have a plate of fresh veggies, as shown, with homemade bread of some kind. This is the last of the sourdough hard rolls, but a new loaf of French sourdough bread has taken its place.

I think it is time for a nice pan of cornbread – real soon.

      Hi Peggy – I use some vegetable powder in most soups, but I forgot to put it into this one. It perks up the taste, but adds a fair amount of sodium. If you are restricted on that score, maybe better not add it. DH attacked the leftovers about ten o’clock that night, but there is still enough left for another lunch – probably tomorrow.

    Love split pea soup but I haven’t made it for ages. Yours looks wonderful.

      Thanks, Tammy! ;-> It’s easy to whip it up, but you have to think ahead. I used my vacuum bottle to pre-cook the peas, so that when the time came to do the vegetables, they were all done at the same time, and the peas didn’t turn to mush, which is what usually happens to my pea soup. It’s good either way, but I prefer to be able to identify the peas as such.
