Vegetable Split Pea Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
For a different spin of traditional split pea soup, try this recipe. The flavor is peppery rather than smoky, and the corned beef is an unexpected, tasty change of pace.

"Very good. A change from the run of the mill soup. We really liked the subtle seasoning. I did use cubed beef in place of the meat because I had it on hand and added a tiny bit of Tones Hickory Smoked salt."
