“This recipe is so tasty and so simple to make! I never had Split Pea soup until after I was married. It is one of my husbands favourites, so this my Mother-in-law's recipe. When I make it I chop my vegetables in a food processor, as we prefer it not so chunky, feel free to do it either way! Also, this soup is even better the next day :yummy:”
