The Canadian in me still appreciates good Canadian dishes and one of those is thick Yellow Split Pea Soup from Quebec. The key to the flavour is finding a good smoked kosher meat and dry yellow split peas. It’s such an affordable meal. Great for a cool, rainy fall day or anytime. You can easily double this recipe. It duplicates so well.


Main ingredients

  • canola oil for sautéing

  • 1 medium carrot, diced

  • 1 stalk celery, diced

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 3 turkey franks, diced

  • 2 cups dry yellow split peas

  • 2 teaspoons parve chicken soup mix

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 6-8 cups water


Prepare the Soup


Sauté vegetables, franks, and seasonings in oil until onions begin to look translucent.


Add water and bring soup to boil for 10 minutes. Turn down to medium low and let simmer for four to five hours.


You can use a hand blender to mix this but I used a potato masher to keep the meat pieces intact. (You can add more water if soup is too thick).
