I had never added potatoes to Split Pea Soup until a friend suggested it. I mash them when the soup is finished cooking and find it gives the soup a richer, creamier flavor.

Thick, chunky and oh so good. It’s a very hearty soup indeed. I omitted the potatoes. I also sautéed the vegetables before adding the water. Poultry seasoning, marjoram and basil were new additions in this type of soup for me. They really lit up the lights in the soup. I’m so happy that I have more to enjoy. ToH - V F E

Made exactly as listed and the flavor was fantastic! It was however, too thick for my liking, easy to correct. Definitely a keeper!
