Perfect Split Pea Soup


This split pea soup is actually a blend of both my grandmother's classic split pea soup recipes. Both used similar ingredients but there were aspects of each soup I liked so I combined them to make the perfect split pea soup. The short ingredient list makes this recipe extremely simple to prepare for, and with the beef bones and root vegetables the flavor will trick your guests into thinking you simmered all day. I serve it with a few fresh croutons and some salt and pepper but feel free to add some cooked egg noodles or a drizzle of olive oil depending on what you like. Enjoy!

What you will need

2 pounds dried green split peas

1 pound carrots

1 large parsnip

2 celery stalks

5 medium to large shallots

1 tablespoon fresh parsley (or 2 dried)

1 teaspoon olive oil

5 beef marrow bones (approx. 1 lb)
