Taste of Home: Split Pea Soup

That’s what we had Saturday!  Split Pea Soup, so yummy and filling.  Sadly enough I didn’t take any pictures.  You can find the basics of my recipe I used here: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/split-pea-and-ham-soup

I used my big soup pot.  Me and my daughter (she’s 10) worked side by side at the kitchen table with our knives and cutting boards, chopping up veggies while the peas and water were simmering on the stove.  She really enjoyed working side by side with me, and getting to use the bigger knife.   I was out of onion, so we aided my dried onion to the pot when we put the vegetables in.

Now my peas only needed to simmer about an hour before they were ready to add the veggies.  Now it said to simmer my veggies 30 minutes, I simmered for 45 and realistically it could of gone a little longer, I mean raw potatoes do not get tender in 30 minutes.

before putting them into the soup.  Definitely I will be using this recipe again, but I will remember the cooking times, and might pre-cook the veggies until almost tender before adding to soup next time.

Do your kids cook in the kitchen?  Do you like split pea soup?  Let me here from you below in the comments!
