    I omitted the salt and used white pepper, used Better Than Boullion Vegetable Base, cooked in slow cooker for 8 hours, no need to puree. Will make often. - 2/10/10

    This sounds great. I LOVE pea soup, but the only way I've ever had it is with chunks of ham in it. I'm excited, and will be making this for dinner tonight. - 3/10/09

    Delicious. I used home made broth instead of bouillon cubes to cut down on salt, but the spices and veggies were wonderful. - 8/2/10

    Outstanding recipe, I made it a couple of days ago. It is very hearty, you do not miss the ham in this recipe. I did not puree it, it was soft enough. - 10/8/09

  • Very tasty and filling. I prefer to extend the cook time to 2 hours and skip the pureeing. I just happen to think a chunkier texture is more satisfying and keeps me feeling full longer since my body has to work a little harder to digest it. Very quick and easy to prepare. A new favorite! - 1/28/14

  • Just made a pot of this and it was good! In general, I don't care for marjoram or cumin, but I made it as written and the seasoning was perfect. Thanks for sharing this recipe. - 12/9/13

  • I made this tonight. I substituted with chicken broth and did not add the carrots. I also added some extra spice. It was yummy. I will make it in the future. - 7/1/12

  • Yum. Used 1/2 tsp vegetable base instead of bullion, and garnished with fake bacon bits. - 3/9/12

  • Excellent and delicious recipe!!! Only change was to use chicken bouillon instead of vegetable (out of it). Pureed 3/4 of recipe and left the rest whole. Didn't need anything else added to it! - 10/9/11

  • ...made it without the bouillon and salt. I did use organic free range chicken broth which did have 550mg sodium...plus rest of ingredients. It was delish. Thank you, REDHEN55 ! - 6/28/11

  • I made this, but just used water instead of broth or bouillon. I also added a tiny zucchini and left out the salt, but I otherwise followed the recipe to the T. I ended up with 8.5 cups (8.5 servings) at 79 calories per serving. It was pretty good and so low calorie, I will make it again. - 2/5/11

  • Like some others, I left out the salt as well. It really doesn't need it. I didn't puree it either, but hubby and I both enjoyed it. I'll definitely make this one again. - 12/11/10

  • I didn't have marjoram so I used Oregano. Very good flavors in this soup. I only pureed about 3 cups of it and left the rest chunky. I like a chunkier soup rather than a thick paste. My husband and I both liked it. - 11/15/10

  • Awesome soup - I skipped the salt and used low sodium Better than Boullion and it had plenty of flavor, still! I just pureed part of it, so it's good and thick, but still has chunks of veggies in it. Great soup, will do this again! - 11/9/10

  • Oh, and I precooked three slices of turkey bacon to put in the soup while it simmered... I really think that was probably empty calories because I don't think it flavored the soup all that much. - 2/15/10

  • I threw it in the crockpot and used homemade veggie broth, good solution for those of you worried about sodium. But taste wise the salt really helps. I ended up adding garlic salt and pepper. - 2/14/10

  • I like chunky soup so I will not be pureeing this...if it's simmered long enough, I'd guess everything will be tender. I LOVE & used Better than Bouillon products! They even have "No Chicken" chicken flavored base as well as "No Beef" which obviously is beef flavored; neither have any meat in them. - 2/12/10
