Split pea soup is definitely a fall or winter soup – it’s filling, hearty and delicious. It’s a kind of soup that you are just dreaming about when coming back home after a long, cold day. Its warming flavor will surely bring your good mood back! :)

Here are all ingredients you’ll need for this great soup:

Split pea soup - vegetables

Split pea soup – vegetables

  • 15 oz. dried yellow split peas
  • 10 oz. sausage – half-slices
  • 1 big onion – diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic – chopped
  • 2 medium carrots – grated
  • 1 parsley root – grated
  • 3 potatoes – diced
  • 1 bouillon cube
  • 3 dried bay leaves
  • 3 dried Jamaica peppers
  • 1 tbsp. dried marjoram
  • salt and pepper

Wash dried split peas on a strainer with current cold water. Put them into a big pot and pour 130 fl. oz. of hot water into it – leave it like this for two hours to make it soften.

Split pea soup - smirred sausage and onion

Split pea soup – simmered sausage and onion

In the meantime dice onion and chop garlic cloves. Simmer it on a hot frying pan with 1,5 tbsp. of oil. Half-slice sausage and add it to onion – fry everything until brown, add pinch of salt and pepper.

Peel carrot and parsley root (I recommend using a peeler instead of knife – material losses are much less then ;))  Grate them using a coarse mesh grater. Peel potatoes and dice.

After two hours of peas softening in water heat it (keep it in the same water!), add bay leaves, Jamaica peppers, 1 tsp. of salt and bouillon cube – boil it for 25 minutes. Stir it occasionally in case peas stick to the bottom of the pot. After that time add prepared vegetables – carrot, parsley and potatoes – boil for another 15 minutes. At the end add fried onion with sausage and boil for last 15 minutes.

5 minutes before the end of boiling add dried marjoram and pinch of pepper. Try the soup to see if its requires more salt or pepper ;)

Consistency of the soup should be creamy with not many peas visible :)  If you consider it to be too thick, you can always add some water more.
