“This is a very good satisfying split pea soup. I was surprised how good it is even without meat. You can add some ham or cooked chicken if you like. I like to precook the barley about 10 or 15 minutes first and then add as directions indicate. This is even better the 2nd. day. It's great for lunch or dinner. I hope you enjoy this one. I believe it came from Laurel's Kitchen. It has no meat in that one.”
