Remember:  Recipes Posted Every Week Day....so hopefully we will see you tomorrow!

So this is my MOM's Split Pea Soup and I can still remember the day I actually TRIED the soup!  You see...when you are a kid, GREEN soup doesn't sound very good!  In fact, it took a little convincing with my own kids.  My 5 year old son now believes this is special 'leprechaun soup'!  But he TRIED it and he LIKED IT!  Whoa!  He LIKED IT!

Nutritional Info Per Serving:  About 200 calories and VERY filling!
Preparation Time: About 10 minutes
Cook Time:  About 90 minutes

Bring 2 of your 36 oz container of chicken stock to a low boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to low (simmer) and add your bag of split peas.

Mix together with your herb blend.
