Wholeheartedly agree with all others: a truly tasty recipe whether you're health conscious or not. My updates to the base recipe: substituted a teaspoon of Penzey's chicken base for the salt to boost flavor without more sodium and added about a quarter cup of half and half for richness -- though it really doesn't need it. :)
I am not a lover of pea soup, but the hubby was craving it so I decided to give this one a shot. Fantastic. I used Imagine brand vegetable broth and followed the recipe pretty much exactly. The amount of salt was perfect for me. Kids and hubby gave it a thumbs up.
I used Kitchen Basics unsalted Vegetable Broth to have a little more control of the Sodium content
Delicious! I used one packet of MBT vegetable bouillon and omitted the salt. Sill tasted a bit salty, but that is likely because I don't use salt, and I use few processed foods. I also added one or two ounces of V-8 juice, as suggested in another post.
