Even the pickiest pea soup lover will request this time and again. Thick and well-seasoned, it packs a nutritional punch, plus plenty of fiber and protein. It's wonderful with a slice of crusty French bread. —Michele Doucette, Stephenville, Newfoundland

Yum! Very good and flavorful! I only blended half of the soup for a more hearty texture. Will try adding some veggie bacon next time too. Will make again forsure.

Fantastic soup, but as a FORMER sufferer of high blood pressure, I skipped the gram of sodium per serving by using water instead of commercial veggie broth. To my palate there was no lack of flavor.

This was really good! I've never had split pea soup before, but I think I'm a new fan. I love how much veggie goodness is packed in here.
