"I love this soup because it simply simmers by itself on the stovetop," says Tracy Fay of Redmond, Oregon. "People are surprised to hear that it has only 1 gram of fat per serving because the texture is so creamy."

Very smooth and creamy without the calories and fat of cream or milk. I add 2 carrots because other split pea recipes I've liked took carrots. I didn't have the bay leaf but you can season this anyway you like. Very Good!!

This soup is sooooo good, and so easy. I put some bacon in, but is not necessary. Will fix it often. Beth
