    Initially this didn't have enough flavour for our liking, but then I made it with low fat, low sodium chicken broth, added about 1/2 cup diced cooked ham, some rosemary and a dash of curry -- very tasty and nourishing! - 2/20/09

    sauteed veggies first in a tbsp olive oil,then threw in chicken stock and half the peas.After simmering for about 1/2 hour throw in rest of peas and simmer about 20 minutes so some of the soup has a little texture. - 4/23/09
