Really good! We boiled the ham bone before to make broth first then added everything and it was the best pea soup I’ve ever had!

Excellent soup. I just added a bay leaf to it for a little more flavour that I like.

This recipe definitely deserves five stars. I have to be honest, I’ve never even tried Split Pea Soup before today nor have I ever even made it and I’m hooked. I did modify slightly, because I almost always do. Instead of water I used chicken broth, added about a 1/2 tsp each onion and garlic powder and was not shy about salt and pepper. Also, if you own an immersion blender, I’d recommend using it over an actual blender to save yourself time. Don’t skip the ham hawks, I used ham shanks.

Delicious. I had a ham bone with a lot of meat in the freezer, so used it. It turned out great.
Anne Cook 21 May 2018
Excellent, and so easy to make! I give the recipe an A+.

Turned out great although I used four hocks instead of two for extra meat but all in all very happy the way it turned out..... might add some red pepper flake next time for a little zing.....
Susanna D. 19 Apr 2018
Delicious when I added 1/8 tsp of cumin!
Cherida Messenger 7 Apr 2018
First time it’s ever turned out...Had to keep it at a boil to break up the peas but delicious
Monique Lawrence 25 Mar 2018
Turned out great! I used dried thyme because I didn’t have fresh and it was still delicious.

Wonderful flavor and perfect texture for split pea soup.
Patty J. 10 Jan 2018
Added to much water and next time I’d add some garlic cloves!?
Richard Magnuson 1 Jan 2018
Had to add a little more pepper for flavor other than that came out great. Love Yummly recipes.
Meghan 30 Dec 2017
Great recipe. Needs to cook closer to 2+ hours though. Also salt and pepper should be added at various points.
Alex P. 27 Nov 2017
Made this for a few buddies after a mountain bike ride. Great for a chilly San Diego night!

My first attempt at split pea soup, and it came out AMAZING! I love smoked ham hocks, but my store was out, so i used smoked turkey wings. They gave off the same smoky flavor, but yielded WAY more meat. I did have to simmer the soup for about 30 minutes after pureeing 3/4 of it, to get the right consistency.
Stephanie P. 31 Jan 2017
its perfect! I used smoked pork neck instead of ham hock since my local store didnt carry them, tho.
Hanne 10 Jul 2016
Delicious. Cooked it for 2 hours as per the directions on the packet of split peas. Will add potatoes next time. Really liked the addition of thyme.
Rand S. 17 Feb 2016
It was great I added some barley too. I used a smoke pork shank. It was a bit tough. I'll use hocks next time
