    Pea soup is a traditional Christmas dish here in Quebec. We usually use dried yellow peas, though. Salted pork is great for flavour too. I think I’ll try this one this year! :)

    Oooooh! I love soups! Soups to me are the ultimate comfort food… “Velvety” is the right word to describe your pea soup. Hmmm, sarap (read: imagining how it tastes!)!

    Just wanted to thank you so much for posting this! I just tried it today and made a small bowl for myself. And guess what? It turned out to be a family hit! Everyone wanted to taste that velvety green stuff I was sipping, and they all went “mmmmmmmmm”. They requested that next time I should make a large pot for the whole family.

    I made a slight modification though. I like celery in all my soups, so I chopped half a stalk and tossed it with the peas and onion leaves. It turned out great :))

    Thank you for posting this! i had some unused peas in the fridge and was looking for a split pea soup recipe when I saw this. I modified it by boiling some smoked bacon in 2 cups of water, with some chicken bouillon since I didnt have chicken stock on hand. I saved most of the liquids after it goes on rolling boil and let the bacon fry in its own fat. I set that aside and sauteed garlic and onions until the onions slightly caramelize, then threw in the peas to cook it up a bit, then the scallions. I poured back my saved broth and ran a hand blender through it to liquify the whole thing. I served it with the backn bits on top.

    It was soooo good!
