uncooked orzo pasta
1 1/2 cups
dried split peas
dried chipotle chile pepper
salt and pepper to taste
it was great, even my kids said it was good,and that means alot.
I cooked it stovetop for 2 hours instead of a pressure cooker.
Followed recipe but tasted it and it was too bland. So started adding spices...onion power, garlic salt and powder, cumin, curry...I didn't even measure...just added and tasted until tasted good. Also did not add the pasta.
Perfect combination of spices and herbs! I replaced pasta with 2 medium size patatos though.
I wasn't a fan of split pea soup until I found this recipe - this soup is delicious! The chipotle chili powder adds a nice kick. I cook this on the stovetop since I don't have a pressure cooker. I usually puree half the soup once it's finished cooking so it's smooth but still has a little bit of texture. Also, I leave out the orzo because I think the soup is perfect without it.
TRY THIS on the stovetop w/out pressure cooker and without soaking! It's easy and tastes better than anything in a can! Skipped the pasta, too. Great.
This soup tasted pretty good, but I would leave the pasta out next time. It was really thick. I pureed most of it and I might puree less of it next time.
This soup was good, though a bit spicier than I anticipated since I'd never used the dried chipotle chile pepper (which I found in the spice aisle). I would cut way back on the chipotle if I made it again since my kids wouldn't eat it due to the spicy nature. My husband and I thought it was tasty though.
this was the first soup i made from scratch and it was delicious! My boyfriend loves it and I do too, I make it in the crock pot turns out great!
