Yellow Split Pea and Bacon Soup
I love this Yellow Split Pea and Bacon Soup. It is so wholesome and hearty, and it is jam-packed with both flavor and healthy ingredients like carrots, celery, and split yellow peas. You will love this old-school soup if you try it.
Start by frying bacon until golden brown. Add some olive oil to the pan and add onions and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent. Add carrots, celery, split peas, chicken stock, smoked paprika, and bay leaf. Bring the soup to a boil and simmer uncovered for 1 – 2 hours until the peas start to break down. Stir regularly to stop the soup from burning on the bottom.
Taste and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
