  1. Place bacon in a large pot, and cook over medium heat until crisp. Stir in onion, leek, carrot, and garlic; cook until the vegetables are soft, about 8 minutes. Pour in chicken broth. Stir in split peas, bay leaves, and rosemary. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover, and simmer until peas are cooked, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Because I am vegetarian, I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and a dash of smoke flavoring for the bacon. This was a delicious soup, and fairly quick to make, too.

My husband and I absolutely did not like this soup, even though we are big fans of peas. I could not get the split peas to soften even after increasing their cooking time quite a bit. I ended up...

This recipe got rave reviews from a bunch of my friends who claim to not even like split pea soup. My adjustments were: I dumped everything in a crockpot. No pre-sauteeing, wanted to see how e...

I am not one to use any one recipe over and over again as I believe there may always be a better recipe out there somewhere. This recipe is one of the few exceptions for me. As I eat very litt...

This soup was easy to make and very tasty. In the future I will go with the low sodium broth and probably sub in some water for some of the broth. I used dried rosemary instead of fresh since ...

This is wonderful soup. I'm a big soup person and this was exactly what I wanted. I have only ever had pea & ham soup. The bacon was very nice. Will def. make this again.

What a nice soup! It was easy to make and just right for a Sunday night supper. I didn't want to buy a whole package of leeks to use just one, so I left that out. Also, I used 2 cans of broth...
