How to Make Split Pea Soup


  • 1Rinse peas thoroughly in colander under cold water, discarding any debris or blemished peas.
  • 2Combine peas, sausage, water, broth, onion, carrots, basil, oregano and pepper in Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, 1 hour 15 minutes or until peas are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir frequently near end of cooking to keep soup from scorching. Cool slightly.
  • 3Transfer sausage to plate. Place 3 cups soup into food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  • 4Return pureed soup and sausage to Dutch oven. If soup is to thick add water until desired consistency is reached and heat through.
  • 5TIP: Split peas are very economical and easy to prepare because they do not require soaking. Salt the peas if desired, AFTER they are cooked. Salt in the cooking liquid slows down the cooking and toughens the peas.
