Rich and Thick Split Pea Soup Recipe

We started a 39-day Soup Challenge to eat healthier after the holidays, figuring if "Survivor" contestants could last 39 days on little food, surely we could survive on soup! This split pea soup was a family favorite. —Debra Keil, Owasso, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW

Just didn't care for this recipe at all, and I love pea soup.

I made this for friends and they raved about it. One way to kick up the flavor a notch is to add a small pinch of cumin- nice!

MY REVIEW

This soup was VERY bland, I didn't like the flavor or the texture. It makes 6 servings. I served 4 servings (1 per person. ) My kids didn't like it and I ate it but didn't like it. I threw the left overs away. I won't make this again! I felt like I was eating food at a nursing home.....texture was terrible!
