This soup is fabulous. I made a bunch of changes out of necessity, since I wanted to try making it with what I had on hand. I used: a full 2 cups of split peas, and upped the liquid to 2 quarts. I omitted the leeks, celery and the bay leaves, because I didn't have any, so I added a large onion and about 2 cups of sliced carrots. I also increased the rosemary (dried) to a full tablespoon.
The soup was slightly too thin for my taste, so as suggested by another reviewer, I made a butter roux and added that to the finished soup. It was FANTASTIC, no need to blend, it was perfect! My boyfriend and I both love this recipe, it's a keeper!
