    Split Pea. (Im sure this might get a response similar to asparagus)

    Nothing is better in my book than a bowl of split pea soup. Well maybe black bean.

    Split Pea Soup (from memory)
    1 Bag split peas
    2 ham hocks
    1 lb diced ham
    2 celery stalks (dice)
    1 lg onion (dice)
    2 carrots (dice)
    1 Red Bell Pepper (dice)
    2-5 Jalepeneos (Dice)
    2 Qts Chicken Stock (more for thinning the soup)
    2-3 Bay Leaves
    Salt, Pepper and Red Pepper Flakes TT

    Place all ingredients in a stock pot and simmer slow till peas are soft or place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low 6-8 hours. When peas are soft remove hocks and bay leaves. Puree to desired consistency. Serve with crusty bread. Drizzle a little evoo over the top of the soup when in serving bowls and sprinkle a few red pepper flakes.

    Thanks for the recipe, Vlap. It's similar to one we use, but yours has more heat. [​IMG]

    When we have split pea soup, we often serve it by some rice (usually brown) in the bowl then ladling the soup over it. I like the texture the rice adds.

    Sounds good to me too.
    The peppers are a nice change.
