      • Oh, yes, this is a pretty basic recipe - add all the vegetables you want! I particularly like the carrots - the color, as much as anything - but almost any root vegetables will work beautifully... And if I have ham, I throw bits into pretty much any bean soup. Others, too, but it goes particularly well with beans.
    • Oooh, I've never made a soup like this before. I reckon the kids would love it. Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. I've Pinned and tweeted this recipe and there's a new linky live now - hope you join in :)
    • I make Split Pea Soup the same way, except I make a spice bag from cheesecloth - put in a sprig of thyme, a bay leaf and two whole cloves - Yes, cloves. It really enhances the soup!
      • I use cloves when I make pea soup with yellow split peas... but I'm not sure I've used them with green. Sounds good! And I've used a tea ball as a spice bag - then I don't have to make anything, but can still easily fish the spices out. Don't always bother... but then I find myself crunching down on a peppercorn or something, and wish I had.
