    • Yes, it’s one of the old classics – and it’s been around for ages for a reason – it’s good! I hope you enjoy it!

    • 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.
