Yellow Split Pea Soup Recipe

January 31, 2018

Hello everyone.  It's been so cold here this January with some snowy days.  Well, in my family we love eating soup during the winter months.  This is a hearty soup that is just perfect to take the chill off of a cold winter day.

I made this soup recently and it tasted so good and it's so easy to make.  It takes about an hour and a half to 2 hours to make.  This goes perfect with bread or rolls and butter.

I hope you enjoy this soup as much as my family does.
