“A split pea recipe using Cajun spices - no, really, it is great! Not your typical pureed split pea soup. Use a pretty neutral flavor spiral ham. If you use a Maple or Honey glazed spiral ham, this concoction is heinous. You need smoked flavor. Ask me how I know. Tony Chachere's + Maple flavor = NASTY.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *** Though this uses Creole Seasonings, I do not like garlic in the recipe. Since there is no garlic, I can't by all rights call it creole. ***.
  2. Wash peas.
  3. Cover with 1 inch water and bring to boil.
  4. Cook slowly, adding water as necessary, until peas begin to soften.
  5. Add ham, bullion, paprika, salt and pepper, and celery, cook 10 minutes.
  6. Add remaining vegetables.
  7. Cook to desired consistency. I add veggies late because I like my pea soup to have chunks. If you like pureed soup, you can add earlier.
