Don't forget to allow soaking time for your split peas. Plan ahead and soak the night before.

This is a very thick and hearty soup. Additional water can be added after cooking if a thinner soup consistency is wanted.

  • Step 5 should be temp 100 not

    Step 5 should be temp 100 not 1000 and don't take MC off and replace with basket. I did that and it bubbled over, replaced the MC and it behaved beautifully (on TM5). I left out salt and added a tbsp vegetable stock instead. Tastes yummy.
