I've only had split pea soup once before at a German restaurant and so I wanted to create it at home, omitting the pork which I've given up. I started out with the intention of making it vegan but then I had to use milk because I had some in the fridge that needed to be used up. I halved the recipe, perfect for my family of 4, used 2 cups of milk, 3 cups of water, cilanto instead of parsely, added a extra garlic clove, used all basil without thyme, omitted the barley, and pureed the whole thing in the blender. SO GOOD! Don't worry if you don't have all the ingredients, because even with all my substitutions it turned out fabulous and very hearty.
