Having only a 3/4 cup of split green peas I halved the recipe using chicken broth instead of the vegetable and made as posted with great results. Made for an excellent supper soup with enough for lunch the next day. We both enjoyed this delicious soup.Thank you for sharing your split pea soup.

A very good and adaptable soup. I changed this up a bit by using a ham bone and chicken broth. I used only 2 potatoes but used the amount of the rest of the vegetables as specified. Delicious and it makes a lot! Thanks for sharing!
