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!
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!
this was good - but needed more flavor. this was 1st time making split pea soup - will search for a better recipe next time.
I also tried with small pieces of Smoked Turkey and it's delicious!
