Mom’s Split Pea Soup Recipe

I drove home the other day and my outside thermostat was showing 7˚F! I walked out of work, zipped my coat to my chin and bolted to my car. My paper thin scrubs didn’t help me when I planted my bum on an ice cold leather seat. Gaaah!

There is a happy ending to this story. I came home to a hot bowl of this lovely split pea soup (made possible by my husband). It was perfect. He called my Mama for the how-to and surprised me when I walked in the door. Yeah,… I married up. 

Ingredients for Mom’s Split Pea Soup:

4 quarts water
1 cup dry yellow split peas
1/2 lb pork riblets
5 medium potatoes
2 medium carrots
1 medium onion
3 Tbsp oil
3-4 garlic cloves
2 Tbsp fresh dill
1 1/2 tsp salt + more to taste
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp Mrs. Dash seasoning

Split Pea Soup

How to make Split Pea Soup:

1. Add 4 quarts of water to a large soup pot over med/high heat. Place 1 cup of dry yellow split peas in the pot along with the riblets; cover (leave the pot open a crack so it doesn’t overflow) and boil for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until peas are almost dissolved. Use a large spoon to remove impurities that float to the top; I did this few times during the cooking process.

Note:  I’ve tested soaking peas overnight in the water to speed up the cooking process but did not notice any difference in timing.

2.  While peas and riblets are boiling, peel and dice 5 potatoes into half-inch cubes, peel and cut the first carrot into small circles about the thickness of quarters. Once the peas dissolve, add potatoes and carrots to the pot. Cook an additional 15 min or until potatoes are cooked through and easily pierced with a fork.

3. Finely grate the second carrot. Then thinly dice 1 onion. Saute both over med/high heat with 3 Tbsp oil until translucent, then add in 3 pressed cloves of garlic along with 2 Tbsp of fresh dill; stir an additional 30 seconds or until garlic is fragrant. Add everything  to the soup pot.

4.  Finally, add 1 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, 1 tsp Mrs. Dash and finish. Add more seasoning to taste.

5. When soup is finished, remove it from the heat and take out all the riblets. Using a fork, separate the meat from the bone and return the clean meat back into the soup. Discard the bones. I’m picky about meat in my soup; I don’t like nasty little “surprises.” My husband did an awesome job with this meat; I didn’t have to inspect what was in each spoonful. He knows me well!

Serve with some fresh chopped parsley on top. And it’s done

      Hi Yelena, with soups like these, it seems everyone grew up eating them in varying consistencies (thicker vs thinner). It also helps to make sure you get the yellow peas and cook for the amount of time stated to give them a chance to soften and expand. Reply

    My husband always asks for split pea soup… apparently it brings back lots of child hood memories of his mom making it… my mom has never made it and I’ve never tried it… I was hesitant to make it because I wasn’t sure how it will turn out. Well… we’ve been married 9 years and I finally got around to making it for him today! Lol. We all enjoyed it VERY much! And husband was VERY surprised when he came home from work on a freezing day to his favorite soup! He did I was exactly how he remembers it. Thank you for the recipie!!!! Reply

    Since I first tried this soup, it became one of our favorites! But I just bought myself an electric pressure cooker and this soup was done in half the time! I cooked meat and peas on high pressure for 30 min and peas were perfectly dissolved and meat was perfect too, then added potatoes and carrots cooked for 7 more minutes and then added the rest of the ingredients and it turned out soon good, and twice faster! I’m loving it! Thanks for your great recipes! Reply

    Just finished cooking and tasting. I followed your recipe but substituted peas (didn’t have any) for 1 cup of garbanzo and 1/2 cup of white beans and used smoked turkey leg in place of pork riblets (don’t eat pork). It came out sooooo good! Garbanzo kept their shape but white beans became mushy. Ii gave the soup nice consistency. I think your recipe is really good basic for any bean soup but yellow split peas already on my shopping list 🙂
    This is 3-rd recipe I’m trying from your kitchen and always success! Thank you Natasha. Reply

I substituted pork to beef (only meat I found in my fridge) and it was still delicious.

      I’ve never thought to use beef; great idea!! Did you add it at the beginning and was it soft by the end? We’ve tried soaking the peas overnight and it didn’t help anything so we don’t recommend it; it’s just not necessary 🙂 Reply

        aw, thanks 😀 I am on a break from taking pictures, because the grayness outside just doesn’t allow for light pictures and there’s not a spot in my house that has enough lighting to be doing this indoors, so I am using what I have from my “backup” storage lol Reply

    Seriously Natasha you have the best husband 🙂 I can’t wait to try making this soup it looks very delicious 🙂 I have a question how big of a pot do you use for your soup and is there a specific brand that you recommend? Thank you 🙂 Reply

      A pot with a heavy/thick bottom is best because it distributes heat evenly and prevents scorching. I use the Kirkland signature brand from costco, but my pots are really heavy (they will probably last forever, but sometimes they are a little much for my wrists!). 🙂 Circulon is a good brand for pots and they make nice, heavy bottoms on their cookware. Always buy the best you can afford 🙂 Reply

    OOOOOOHHHH! I made this tonight, except I used green split peas and I had a ham bone for the meat. Otherwise, I followed your post, and am very pleased with a DELICIOUS, hearty, yummy, rib-sticking winter soup. MMMMMM! Thank you for sharing yet another marvelous recipe that allows for substitutions. Vadim is the man….such a nice hubby! Reply

    Yum! I love split pea soup. It’s so homey and comforting. I could probably live just on soups:). This soup looks wonderful. Reply
