Soup Week was so enjoyable it seemed wrong to limit it to 7 brief days.
Incredibly straightforward to make (a true one-pot wonder), this smoky split pea soup only gets better when dished up the next day! I made this Appetite for Reduction recipe last night and had just enough for lunch today. The smokiness comes my fave spice - smoked paprika. The split peas melt away to make a creamy broth and diced carrots add the perfect amount of sweetness to balance the dish. My only complaint was that it didn't make quite enough for the promised 6 serves. Other than that, I think this would be a winner with any pea and ham soup eater.
