Wonderful for a winter day, this soup gets subtle flavor from curry. I serve it with salad and a toasted baguette.

I rated this soup before it had the stars so I will do it again. I am sorry if my remarks show up 2 times but I want to share them with you. This is my favorite pea soup now. I will be making it again. I did not have all the ingredents so I had to make some changes and did not use the milk, cream, nor mint. I used dried split peas instead of frozen peas. I just cooked them longer until there were soft. I love the curry! Just a very pleasing taste. I hope you enjoy also.

This is a great soup. I do believe it is my favorite pea soup. I did not have all the items called for, so I omitted the milk, cream and mint. I used dried split peas instead of frozen peas. I just cooked them until they were done. The curry is a nice touch!
