My Very First Split Pea and Rosemary Puree Soup

My very first split pea soup is yummy!!

This is one of the first soups I ever made!  I’ll never forget it  – it was the morning of my fifth birthday. I woke my parents up at 5 AM, begging for my presents. I could barely control my excitement when they handed me my gift. I tore through the wrapping, and there it was! Just what I wanted! A ten pound bag of green split peas!! Oh, what a lucky girl was I!! Of course, there was another little package with some paprika, bay leaves, garlic, and rosemary. I went right to work! I broke out my “Fisher Price Junior 10 Quart Stock Pot, my “Little Cook’s Knife Set,” and, of course, my “Lil’ Immersion Blender.” An hour later, a perfect soup was born! The split peas made it so creamy and smooth! I remember commenting to my  mother that the paprika gave the soup such a nice color! And the rosemary – subtle and woodsy. Then I sat down and watched 3-2-1 Contact. What a perfect birthday!

Ingredients (in no particular order): split peas, rosemary, paprika, tomato paste, soy sauce, carrots, bay leaves, garlic, parsley, onion, salt, pepper, homemade vegetable stock goodness

    I’ve never had a pureed soup before but this was yummy. I could eat this every week. I accidentally voted wrong so, if you can, reset it for 5 spoons!

  • Ann says:

    Delicious. Very subtle flavorings make it different and much better than ordinary split pea soup.

  • Carol says:

    Simply delicious! This was my first puree split pea–and it was mouth watering yummy! I am a true believer of fresh healthy soups. This gets a 5 from me.

    Keep the great healthy soups coming!

  • Susanna says:

    This soup was perfect. I recently had sinus surgery and needed something soothing and warm to help heal me. This was the perfect treat. The flavor combination really worked, and although I tend to prefer chunky soups to pureed, this was definitely my favorite soup this week!

  • Jenn says:

    YUMMY! This was my first soup, and I can’t wait for the next one! Thanks.

  • Kelly says:

    Loved it! I don’t know what the heck makes that blend quite so special, but it was delicious

  • buffalosteve says:

    Really good. I am now a fan of Split Pea Soup. I ate the quart myself (although not at once).

  • Carolyn says:

    The tomato and rosemary make this soup spectacular! 5 spoons for sure.

  • KC says:

    Sick with the flu and just picked this up at Smuckers Farm’s shop on 14th. Delicious, wholesome, beautifully pureed–ideal first meal of the day. Many thanks!

  • Michelle says:

    Souper yummy! I can’t go past SweetGreens without getting some. Definitely 5 spoons or more.

  • Robin says:

    First soup I had from Soupergirl and still my all-time favorite! That rosemary piece really makes it irresistible!

  • beth says:

    Loved this. It was so light and airy. The rosemary was subtle. Hard to believe this is dairy-free. I also feel like it must be rather low calorie since it doesn’t have as many sweet starches (sweet potatoes, carrots).
