Reviews for Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

"Delicious! I did not have any vegetable broth, so I used 6 cups of water and used an entire head of minced garlic (which is great as a low sodium option). I added 1/4 tsp of liquid smoke to the soup prior to blending it. That little bit of liquid smoke goes a long way, and gave this soup that smoky ham flavor.I personally would skip the blending step and eat it as is, but my 5 year old prefers the creamy texture."
"Delicious! .... I followed the recipe but I skipped the blender part .... so easy even I couldn't screw it up .... btw ..... 1 cup serving should be about 4 WW points ....."
"I just want to say OMG this soup is so GOOD. I didn't even add the pepper and salt. Thanks so much !"
"I made this soup exactly as written and both my husband and I loved it. He's a meat eater and typically adds ham, but said it wasn't needed with this soup."
"Absolutely the best split pea soup. Normally I add ham or bacon to get extra flavor, but with this recipe you don't need to. I love it!! Kids love it!! Two thumbs up!!"
