    This is so simple to make and is absolutely delicious  -  11 Jan 2017


    A wonderful thick smooth soup, I made it as written except for cooking my onion and 3 cloves garlic in approx a teaspoon of olive olive oil first, then adding chicken stock/broth in place of veg broth. I used a food processor to chop up my veggies, so it was super easy!! While my first load of veggies and stock was cooking, processed the zucchini and broccoli and placed in a bowl with the dried basil and pepper, then processed the spinach and placed in second bowl. I used a spoonula for stirring soup as well as scraping my processor bowl. Seasoning was perfect, remember to use ripe veggies for full flavor!! This is a keeper, I'll be making more tomorrow!  -  10 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro and parsley, added ham, doubled the split peas,and used chicken broth instead of veg.broth. This was so wonderful that my family asked me to make it again and my mother-in-law and sister-in-law begged for the recipie. YUM!  -  08 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
